Will shortly be running an underground feedline about 150' to my 17M
antenna.  I've got a nice roll of RG-8 that I'd like to use, but the 1.95 dB
loss means that 36% of my power will be wasted in heating the coax.  (And
that's only if SWR=1:1).  Am instead thinking about running 450 ohm ladder
line with 9:1 transformers each end.  Anybody got any better ideas??

73, Rod
