Whether they use calendared or cast depends on the shop and the application. If it's a good shop and you explain that it's for outdoors they _should_ suggest that you spend the extra for cast. Most...

But whatever you do, please don't use wire nuts, or the even worse, the twist and tape method. Either of these will guarantee troubles further down the road.
