I am looking for a cable (from display to antenna) for an old Apco AR-16 marine radar. New or used. Any help or suggestions appreciated.

What frequency is the cable handleing? In general the lowest resistance
is best. Largest center conductor, silver instead of copper. Frequency affects
the spacing desired between the center conductor and the shield. I can not remember whether in frequency/N N is best even or odd. One is good and the other is bad. Then
you take a standing wave meter and adjust the length as best as you can.
