Where to buy Ecoflex 15 plus?
« on: March 02, 2014, 12:40:44 AM »
£7.00 per metre at thedxshop.com is the only legit looking place I've found it.
Anyone know of any others?

If you can tolerate the slightly poorer loss figure, Westflex 103 from Westlake is a substantially less expensive alternative.

The Westflex is a very good alternative

Thanks.
I'm using Wesflex at the moment but want to try out some Ecoflex.

Thanks Alan. All the sites that came up when I googled were foreign!
diodecomms.co.uk looks a good bet.

On the subject of low loss coax and particularly Westflex 103, do any of you solder the centre core on the plug?
If so, I could do with some tips as I've tried in the past and the dielectric insulator starts melting before the copper is hot enough to solder!

Well I ordered from diodecomms only to be told after they took my payment that they were out of stock!
I hate sites like that.:(

Here in North America LMR 400 is very popular....Is it the same as Ecoflex?

Do you guys have LMR 400/600 on the other side of the pond?

I got some ecoflex 10 from diodecomms, it makes a big difference...take a polar screenshot before and after.

Just thought I'd let you know that my Ecoflex 15 plus arrived today.
Apparently there's been problems with manufacture in Germany hence the delay but all is good now.
Hopefully anyway. I'll find out at the weekend. :)
