MPD Digital MIL-C-17 RG-8U Made in the U.S.A. (68 cents per foot using Coupon Code Christmas)

Good Old Fashioned RG-8/U - Hard to find these days! MPD Digital has contracted with CONWIRE to manufacture 100,000 feet of MILSPEC RG-8u in their Illinois plant. It took us a while, the first shipment of copper was rejected because it did not meet 96% purity standards. But our first shipments are arriving.

Super Flexible, Non-Contaminating PVC Jacket, 95% Braided Shield, and Braided pure copper center conductors. This is a premium RG-8 product.

As you know, there are NO real standards for RG-8 coax anymore. We have seen Chinese RG-8 selling with aluminum braid shields and copper clad conductors. As far as "RG Type" coax is concerned these days it is the Wild West. This makes it more important then ever to find a good US based source that follows the old MIL-C-17 US Military Standards.

As with all MPD Digital Cable assemblies our Warranty Applies:

  •  60 Days Return for refund 
  •  1 Year Replacement for failure 
  •  5 Years Repair/Replace Connectors 
  •  10 Year Replacement for cable jacket failure.
