The RF Suppressor Ground System Question

Hi,

I want to use the RF Suppressor Ground System  as described in the article on the flexwebsite (http://kc.flexradio.com/knowledgebasearticle50426.aspx ) I have searched the net like crazy to buy some RG8 Coax here in Europa (the drawing says RG8) but no succes. It seems not to be sold here under that name.
What other coax can I use for the system ? Suggestions ?
Can I use any other coax as long as it has the same Capacitance as the RG8 ? (Capacitance RG8 = 30.8 pF/ft [101.05 pF/m])
Or are there other parameters I have to pay attention to ? 

thnx, 73, John (PD1JAP)

LMR-400 or equivalents, rg-213, look for the ultra flex versions of these coaxes if you don't want the solid center lead.

Thank you very much for the quick response. I see rg-213 has the exact same Capacitance.

thnx, 73. John
