Probably good advice, but I've had 1400' of inexpensive,
polypropelene jacket, foil shielded "studio installation" cable
suspended between trees and running through a wetland and woods for
over a year with no signal degradation or interruption. A fear was
that the squirrels and birds would chew and peck on it but they have
not, so far. The mic cables are supported by galvanized electric
fence wire so they are not stretched by their own weight.   Its
Manhattan Cable type M14327.  Rob D.
