Tim is correct that stranded cable is more durable and shielding is recommended by A&H. We have used solid core Duracat because we have events requiring 200 and 300 ft runs. The cable is rated for live applications and the rubberized jacket is very durable. 2 years in and we have never lost a cable or had interference issues. A&H lists a company in Germany, called Klotz, that manufactures solid strand and shielded cat5e.

I would be very interested in a solid core, double shielded option in the states if anyone here knows of a manufacturer.
