The Wireman Actually he sells 8X or mini 8. Roughly the same diameter as 58 but less attenuation at U/VHF freqs

HRO sells bulk, although couldn't tell you specifically RG-8U/Mini or not. My guess is maybe not.

LOL! By the foot, altho I'm sure if you asked they'd help roll the whole wooden spool to your truck.

I've only seen pre-made cables, with pl259's on each end, at HRO but I guess it wouldn't hurt to give them a call.

I really only want one pl259 on.. then feed the wire through and solder the other one on.

I'll figure it out. maybe go out there sat and buy me a kenwood 710a and swing by roots house for an antenna. then find me a gps that will work.
