Checking the TT webb page, I find that their G5RV requires 70ft of coax
minimum. Why is this? I've seen this somewhere before but never gotten a
technical explanation for it. It would seem to increase loss (a lot)
especially if RG-58 is used as mentioned! But perhaps this is the plan.
Maybe they want higher loss so the swr will appear lower.
