Default Coax questions for 102" and Wilson 1000


I have to replace the coax on on my truck. I have been running rg8x on my 102" , Should I stick with the rg8x or is there something better for use with the extra wattage of the palomar 400?

Also is it possable to replace the coax on a Wilson 1000? A friend has one but the coax is damaged on it and he may give me a deal on it if I can repair it. What should I use if it can be replaced?

LMR-240 Flex is the best RG-58 coax out there - IMO . . .
binrat, m42duster and BammBamm like this.

RG58 should be more than enough for a Palomar 400 so 8X will be more than enough.

The coax on the Wilson 1000 can be replaced easily.
