Thanks for reminding me. This is another reason why it is used in modern vehicles that are crammed full electronic devices leaking RF well up into the UHF ranges.

I gave up on RG58 long ago (thank you Radio Shack). If I need more power/lower loss in a mobile I'll go to RG8X or LMR 240 type cables.
