Who still uses RG59 and for what purpose?

Optimus2357 was asking what that thin coax cable in the picture at the start of this thread was.

We still have some in our lab for the short connections from the tap into some of the test cable modems.

Oh thanks for the answer. I was hoping maybe it was something new. I have always wondered why the basic design (with improvements) have stayed the same so long. Imagine coaxial with ThermaVolt dielectric insulation, graphite nano-wrap shielding and a ICP core. Were talking cable so thin you could lay it on the wall and paint over it and not even notice. Ahh yes, but it all boils down to cost and compatibility. That's why RJ11 hasn't changed in what..60 years?
