Coax question...

Recommended Posts

Have a question about the coax, from a tower, or antenna location, and the coax runs through the yard to the shack, how do you guys protect it from the lawn mower ?...

I have always tried to route it close to the edge of the yard but that don't always work...

Buried PVC conduit usually works best.  Depending on distance, you might make an aerial messenger cable using a PVC coated steel cable with the coax attacked to it an run above ground.

Also Times Microwave makes a direct burial cable, LMR-400DB.  No need for conduit, trench it 6 inches or so deep to prevent the mower catching it, just remember where it is in case you ever have need to dig in the yard at a later date
