Anybody know what  the loss of 450 Ohm ladder line at 3.8 Mhz is , the
cheap stuff  with square holes like you get at Ham Radio outlet a 500 ft
run. I  have measure the DC resistance of 31 ohms for 500 ft shorting
out one end and measuring the loop. I  have see test results at 40 Mhz
when wet there a additional 6 db for 100 ft. I replacing mine now with
#12 copper wire and wonder how much I will gain.
