DX Engineering Doubles the Number of Options for Ordering Custom Cable Assemblies Online

DX Engineering announced the addition of seven new types of coaxial cables that Hams can choose when using the company’s Online Custom Cable Builder.

Available at, the Online Custom Cable Builder provides a convenient, step-by-step way for customers to select and order their cables by type, length, and specific connectors on both ends. This latest expansion brings the total of available cables to 14.

“Coaxial cable is a critical component of Amateur Radio station performance. It’s why we’re committed to making it as easy as possible for our customers to get the exact high-performance cables they need,” said Scott Jones, N3RA, DX Engineering Sales Manager. “Many Amateur operators simply go to our website and, with a few clicks, customize their assemblies and have them shipped to their door. It takes minutes to order. And now there are many more choices.”

New Online Custom Cable Builder Options

  • DX Engineering RG-214 Double Shielded 50-ohm Coaxial Cable: RG-214 is a tough yet flexible coax with 12-gauge silver-plated stranded copper center conductor, solid polyethylene dielectric, and two layers of silver-plated braided copper shields for exceptional RF isolation performance and superior power handling.
  • Times Microwave LMR-600, LMR-600UF (UltraFlex) and LMR-600DB (Direct Bury): LMR-400 and LMR-600 are UV-resistant, polyethylene-jacketed cables designed for 20-year service in outdoor use.
