Default mystery cable - good for anything?

My floor at work is moving and all kinds of fun stuff is turning up in the lobby junk pile.

Today's find is a hank of cable with 4 twisted (all twisted, not two twisted pairs) 26 AWG conductors with a foil shield surrounded by a metal braid.

On the cable is the following:
MONTROSE/CDT CBL 2865 4C 26 AWG (UL) CMP SHIELDED - 48579

Seems like something I could find info about online but I'm not turning up anything.

Is it good for anything?

It used to be, then they threw it out.

Sorry.

Could be good for making some custom dual-RCA cables? maybe if it's a long run, put low-power speaker level signals through it. Especially if you are picking up HF or RF hash on your speaker cables...

I just used some extension cord scrap to make a form for a custom fiberglass piece.

I guess what I'm getting at is that you are limited only by your imagination.
