    For set up on 11 meters in your automobile, use.Really, you should be changing the antennas length to alter SWR.

    Whats the best or most commom high end coax to run ft for a basestation CB? be best to use for low-loss on the CB/11 meter bandwidth at $/+tx.If this sounds confusing, better check out the "Antenna Basics" section.

    Re: Best coax for 11 meters I would recommend going for mini RG8 - low loss cable but at 7mm thick it is more flexible than the full size RG8.W4KSL likes this.

    Coax. Most CB and HAM radio operators use coaxial (coax) cable to feed their One of my good friends said to me, "I think changing the length of the coax.For all practical purposes, RG-8u would work just fine.

    Complete Guide to CB Coax forum? Hopefully, this will help you so that you can pick the best coax cable for your particular needs. To begin, note that not all coax cables are exactly like.We recommend 18 feet of coax even if you don't need that much.

    For set up on 11 meters in your automobile, use RG-8X or RG MINI coax. Do the same as I instructed for base station installations, except this time cut your RG-.Includes initial monthly payment and selected options.

    Hi all I just got my first 10 meter radio on my birthday the other day (my first HF actually!) and was wondering what coax would be best to.I get more watts out of the radio verified by a watt meter with certain lengths of coax.

    About this item. This CB coax cable is used for CB ham radio, antenna analyzer, tuner, switch, monitor, dummy load and SWR meter, it is also great for Jeep.Assuming you have a common antenna, that is something that does not use the coax for phasing or tuning or impedance matching where the length is critical to perform that task, you should completely ignore all that drivel about how long you coax should be.

    When routing coax cable, you'll often be working with small firewall opening or holes.

    There's also no need for them to advertise it as "black".

    If the feedline has a lot of common mode RF on it then different lengths of coax will show different SWR at different points along the coax.

    After the antenna has been tuned, whatever reaches from point A to B will work just fine.

    If you do select a coax length different than the 18 feet, there may be additional antenna adjustments that you will need to make in order to achieve good SWR reeadings.

    First, they have a lower profile and allow the coax to come off the mount at a 90 degree angle vs straight down.

    All RG8X coax will have a stranded core.

    Most times, you can verify that you have common mode currents flowing back down the coax by grabbing hold of the coax while transmitting and moving the coax around.

    Keep in mind that we are on the down solar cycle so 10 will be in and out, but you'll still make contact and some will surprise you.

    Best Coax? forum? Velocity factor is simply a number we use to determine how fast or slow a wave travels through coax.

    Sorry, I meant to say coax is unbalanced line and expects an unbalanced antenna.

    I am not going to go into detail of soldering on PL connectors to coax but let you look at figure 2.
