Why spend big bucks on LMR 600.  For the same price or less you can  get used 
7/8 inch Heliax.  Lots of times you can even get the ends  included.  There 
is usually some of it around at most of the bigger  hamfests.  Even if the ends 
are not included you can pick them up used  pretty cheaply, or even make your 
own.  Lots of guys have posted on how to  do this
The size you're looking for is not all that big and could easily be done  
with two pieces of shorter length butted together.  My guess is you should  be 
able to find the length you need for less than $200...and the loss on the  
Heliax is super for the length you need.
