I have a run of 50 Ohm coax cable that is about 150ft long and terminated at both ends. I am suspecting that i have a very intermittent fault at one end. The problem is that i do not have any slack to terminate a new connector and cannot replace this run of cable. What would be the best and most accurate way to determine if this cable has a fault in it? Part number to this cable is 42601. TDR or VSWR?
