<< Hello all you experts!!!   I have a question.  I am planning on changing
 antenna.  I will be using a Telrex 10 meter, 5 element beam on a 23 ft boom
 and am going to mount it on a Rohn 58 ft foldover tower with about a 140 ft
 run to the shack. 
 I plan to use 9096 coax to feed the antenna.  I choose that antenna coax
 since it is relatively low loss and I plan to use some on VHF and UHF on
 different antennas and no antenna relay.
 As my memory strikes me, the velocity factor enters into the equation of how
 long I need to cut the feedline.  
 Can someone advise me if I need to cut the coax to a particular length or
 should I just cut it to whatever length I need?  How will the SWR
 measurements be if i cut it either way?
 Thank you & 73

Cut it to reach the back of the radio. anything shorter doesn't seem to work.
