Antenna Coax Question

Post by LTCSZ » Thu Apr 09, 2020 6:31 pm

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!

Rg174 should have less than 2dB attenuation for shortwave
