I never said it was 100 feet.  It was more like 80 or 85 feet, and 
it was at 29MHz.

I do.  I got several pieces of it free, from a good ham friend.

Sure, but my point was not really laboratory loss measurement 
techniques and error analysis.  It was simply that a 15% power loss 
can be expected from (an 85 foot length) of GOOD, NEW, coax.
