Please Help ID Coax

I stumbled upon a nearly full 1K' roll of coax at a yard sale and the guy only wanted 5.00 for it.

There are no markings on the jacket, or on the wooden spool.
For some reason, I had a feeling that it was RG-11, but what am I out, if it isn't?

The conductor, is 14GA BC, (064), the foam, is .265, foil and aluminum braid and OD, is .340.

I'm also wondering how concerned I should be about UV, since it's a white jacket.

TIA, for any suggestions.

Looking at some Belden and Commscope RG11 type specifications, your numbers indicate it is probably a version of RG11.

Don't know how long white jacket will last in the sun.

Thanks,Tripelo.
Yeah, I looked at a couple of those Belden charts and that was about my best guess.

Maybe, the white jacket, is the reason the guy got rid of it
