Those are long runs at VHF!

My longest run here is about 125' to my 4 X 7 element 6M array.  I use 
LMR-600 from the shack to the top of the tower, and then LMR-400 from the 
power-divider to the beams.

I use about 70' of LMR-900 from the shack to the top of the tower to feed 
the 4 X 13WL 432 array.

My several years ago original 1296 system used LMR-1200.  That stuff is as 
hard to run as big hardline!
