Antenna Coax Question

Hello: I am planning a camping trip and was wondering if someone could recommend the lowest loss, lightest weight coax to take along to allow an antenna run of around 30 feet? I will be taking a "painters pole" that will allow me to raise my small dipole to a better height. Thanks for the assistance!

Re: Help ID'ing Items Part Two

Thank you so much for ID'ing these little devices. Would you recommend chaining your two filter blocks together to block both AM and FM signals? I have interference from both.He also gave me a 9:1 Balun. Should I use this with a random length wire antenna? Thanks again!

Re: Balun
