I use LMR-400 on a 70' hazer tower. The non-flex version is still
plenty flexible. It simply falls to the ground as you crank the antenna
down. You can stack it in 4' loops really easily. I don't know why
one would want to use hardline or 9913 these days for such a short run
as Larry is contemplating. They have lower loss stuff of bigger
diameter too. I don't know how it would play.
