I hope that I got the letters and numbers correct. I am wondering about the performance AND weatherproof comparisons between mini-8 cable and stiff RG-8 cable. It's for a cb base station installation. I'm installing a base cb antenna on the roof of my house, and just need enough length to get it to my cb in the basement. The mini-8 cable just seems really weak and flimsy for this application, but I've also had RG-8 cable cut nearly in half by a simple windstorm (up against the side of a gutter). So any advice would be appreciated.
