Subject: Re: Don't need to skinkin' wire!

If I were a "bettin' man" I'd bet a lot of us can't stand a delay for such a
small obstacle. The Belden coax can't be that critical, any high quality 50
ohm coax should suffice, right? But then, if you have the wire most of us
should be able to do the stripping ourselves. Count me in I'll work it out.
