You keep mixing up the 3 Mbit and 10 Mbit. _They were not the same_. (I
_really_ need to retake those photos with a ruler in them...)
The stuff with better shield, marking bands, etc is 10 Mb; it's about 1.05cm
in diagmeter. The black stuff (the stuff Dave is holding in the video) is 3Mb;
the piece I have is .95 cm.
The video, perhaps confusingly, shows a mix of 3Mb and 10Mb gear. The small
aluminium sheet transceiver (the one attached to the black cable when Dave is
doing his spiel) is the 3Mb one; the others are 10Mb.
