Dave: The cat 6 I have is actually 23 AWG. I just checked. It is the pain in the butt heavy stuff that I hate building cables with. I'm going to whip up a 100footer and test it out with it coiled in the truck since I have the truck here with me today. The coax I have is Beldin 9913 selected due to my length requirement. The losses are bad, but not tragic.
