[CQ-Contest] 80m delta-Loop coax

It was 68 degrees today and the 80m delta loop is up and ready to connect to a 75ohm matching transformer. I know I can use RG11, but I was wondering if:

1. There is a thinner version that will handle 1.5kw on 80m...ala RG8X?

2. Will RG59 handle the power?

3. Any good sources to buy a small piece of RG11 (probably 50ft). Most places sell in bigger quantities.

4. To calculate the length of the transformer, is it 234/f X VF?
