True Ladder Line here at home and good short run Rg8x when port
Fred.... Sorry, but you'll really like the antenna. Is a great performer but often scratch my head over their 20' max height. At that height, I thought it would probably be NVIS on 40, but actually, has produced some long haul QSO's.... I use a 31' Jackite pole and zip tie it at the 20' mark. Was simply placing it over the smallest section then extending to 20' but busted out my top section in the wind. Any questions my email is good on this site.....72
QRP Portable Antenna Coax
I use RG58 type coax but it is for my portable QRP station, using light weight home made dipoles for 40 and 30M that I suspend in trees with light rope. Short runs of about 25 or 30 ft , just enough to get to the rig on a folding table under trees.
This is used when I go camping in the summers.
the coax is flexible and easy to transport in a small Gym Bag.
Losses of short runs on 7 and 10 MHz are not very much.
