    Jeez, go for the RG-213 and don't worry about it. We're talking -nths
here. The bottom line in our area is "can the JA's tell the difference?". If
they can't - why bother? For runs of 100 feet like yours, 213 is fine. The
difference is tenths of a dB. You can measure it with lab instruments but you
can't hear the difference.

     When you start getting to 150-200 feet, then you probably want to pay
more attention to the feedline.
