[time-nuts] Measuring coax temperature coefficient with a TICC

Yes, for a variety of reasons, I would not expect the best results with coax on a spool. The coax that I tested was a loose coil of coax pre-fabbed with BNC connectors. It should not have any significant stresses on it than a laid out 100 foot run would. The main purpose of the experiment was just to see how well the TICC could detect temperature effects on a hunk of coax. I just found a small styrofoam insulated shipping box (I think it might have been used for shipping pies) that should make for a better cable testing box.
> I would question how much the results will relate to real-world use of coax, where its not
normal to have great real of it.
