    Sure, why not?

    Longer coax is even better if it means the antenna is higher.:)

    Most of the coax I've ever used doesn't have feet that I know of. Did yours suddenly sprout some and walk away?

    Do you still measure stuff in cubits?

    Only when I'm building another pyramid---but one must admit that it's a clever way to measure things!

    27 feet? Holly cow, you could use RG 8X for that short of a run. But, there's nothing wrong with using LMR 400. "S Meter" wise, on the receive end, the person will never see the difference between the two coaxial cables.
