I'll also be watching this one, my guess would be 300 ohms or higher. I
recently used the stuff to connect a B&W 51SB side band generator to a
Viking II. 50 ohm and 75 ohm cable did not work (the unit is inserted
between the driver and the final grids of the J.V.II) but the car antenna
cable worked fine with no loss as compaired to short open jumpers. Radio
Shack sells 12ft extensions which are a great source for this cable.
