Does anyone know how to repair ribbon cable? Answered

Does anyone know how to repair ribbon cable? (the "Flat Flexible Cable" type) I tried sanding down the cable until the copper was visible, and taping the two parts together, however this hasn't worked.

"Fixing" this stuff, at the frequencies its often used at, is likely to cause horrible reflections and stuff. Better replace it with new. Steve
