Some strange damage to one of my feedlines has happened to me twice in the last two weeks. About two weeks ago I was mowing behind my house. I moved the feedline of my G5RV out of the way and mowed the area it usually lies in. A bit later I went to move it back, and discovered a half dozen or so slits in the outer jacket. I assumed I somehow ran the cable over with the mower, even though I moved it, mentally kicked myself in the butt for being so stupid, and repaired the damage. Fast forward two weeks. Today I was mowing again, but before I even got started, I took the feedline and secured it about 6' above the ground between two masts, to right where it enters the house through the wall. In other words, from where it hangs down from the antenna, to where it enters the house, it was over 6 feet in the air the whole way. I observed no damage to the outer jacket. I patted myself on the back for my proactive measures, and lesson learned and proceeded to the task of mowing. Approximately 3 hours later I went out back to return the cable to its normal position. To my horror I saw damage even worse than the first time. This time about 14 inches of mangled outer jacket. I have no idea what caused it. The lawn mower cannot be blamed this time. The damage is just a few inches away from where it happened the first time, but is more widespread. I had the damaged portion of feedline, plus about 5 or 6 feet of the undamaged part in my house the first time, in order to repair it. I thoroughly inspected it. The damage I found today is brand spanking new. I do not own a weed whacker, so that can be ruled out. I absolutely did not run over the cable with the lawn mower. Looking at the photos, has anyone ever seen damage like this due to natural causes? I'm thinking maybe a squirrel, but this part of the cable was suspended above the ground. I'm rather disgusted over this.
