What is the best way to run 450 ohm ladder line through a block/stucco wall,
where the stucco has  steel mesh behind it?   There is no wood, vinyl, or
window pane to  use for access.

I was thinking of a piece of pvc pipe, a few inches longer than the wall
thicknness, a cap on each end, with a slit cut in each cap  for the ladder
line to pass through.

How much clearance  is required beetween the ladder line  and the  steel in
the  wall to prevent  problems?

Tnx, 73 Steve KW3A
