Re: RG8 Co-ax that can be buried?

I pushed rg8 through 1.5" conduit 20ft with 2 fingers, but then I left it elevated to clear the mower along a wood fence.  Would not recommend for the world above 50. but fine for HF.

I would recommend the Conduit. Go at least twice as big as you think you
need. when you put it in, put in runs of good nylon sting from one end of
the conduit to the other, and just leave them there. As long as they don’t
get tangled, you can pull more runs through later on. Much easier than
digging a trench each time you want to add a run of coax.

Subject: [070] RG8 Co-ax that can be buried?

A bit of technical help please?
Does anyone know of a quality RG8 co-ax that can be buried? I have about a
30' run that goes to my tower. It either has to be buried 4" to 6" under the
lawn, or sleved in 4" pvc pipe with weather heads on each end.
The labor is a big difference for me. (And my gardener)
Looking down the road a bit, it's a huge hassle to do the pvc pipe since the
addition of antenna's to my tower would require a 'fish tape' or strong cord
in the tubing to pull additional co-ax runs through.
Experienced help pls?
