    Dave- I think that AD5MB does endorse protecting the coax, but am not sure which spiral wrap ( there are a few ) that he has in mind. The 'split loom' that I refer to is sold by various commercial outfits which should be convenient: WalMart has the stuff for about $3.99 in the electrical section next to AC distribution strips- this is a little high for 6 feet of 1/2" or 3/4" size stuff. You can find a similar price at O'Reilly / Checker auto parts without looking so hard. Tessco (www.tessco.com ) sells it in 50 ft. lengths and you may be able to resell some later- or not. In any event, protect the coax from abrasion for longer life. KB0MNM(/5)-73
