If you have a repeater next door... repeater I use the most is 40 air miles from me! At VHF use the best coax you can afford! I watched eBay and someone put up some LDF4.5-50, a real oddball hard to find connectors. But I also found 2 connectors cheap so I got it for 50 cents a foot brand new and 2 brand new connectors for $25. My loss on that 60 foot run is around .5db! If you have any cell towers going up near you stop and see if they have any cable end pieces they want to sell. Most goes to a scrapyard for pennies on the dollar, offer 50 cents a foot and go home with 1/2 inch or 7/8 inch heliax! Connectors for both are cheap on eBay and assembly instructions are packed with the connector in most cases or are available online. Newer connectors are solder free making them a piece of cake to put on.
