Coax Cable Spec's?

03/05/2017 7:51 PM

There is a coil of coax that all it says is Carol C5208 and I can not find any data on it anywhere.

Anyone?

Maybe you should have Googled Carol 5028 rather than Carol 5208?

General Cable purchased the Carol brand of cables back in 1992. You should start with them.

Post a pic of the end, where it's cut off. From the pattern it looks like there might be braided shield under the outer insulation - something you'd see with coax - but what the end look like?

That's what it is. Balanced line audio cable. One of the inner conductors will be red, one green or black, plus shield conductor.
