I have a 500 ft roll of "Wonderful" brand RG-62A/U in the garage that I 
picked up somewhere. For anyone that needs a piece, just send to my QRZ 
address an appropriate SASE and I will return a 10 ft piece of this coax for 
free. If so moved, you can include a donation to AMSAT or send one directly 
to Martha. I don't expect 50 requests, but when I get to 30 or so I'll warn 
everyone I'm running out.
