What is RG8 Coax Cable?

Our RG8 Coax Cable is a military-grade coaxial cable. This coax cable features a stranded bare copper conductor, solid low-density polyethylene dielectric, and a black PVC jacket. RG8 coax cable also has solid protection due to its bare copper shield. This product is capable of operating within temperatures ranging from -40°C and +80°C and has a voltage rating of 4000V. This 52-ohm cable meets the military MIL-C-17 specifications. RG8 cables are ideal for radio transmission applications, including radio antennas. They also have approval for use in direct burial applications.
