Most of us avoid the smaller coax because the loss to rcv'd
signals!  To me, for runs over several feet,  I will not use the
small coax because of loss to signals and perhaps the
chance of missing a weak one.  Smaller coax is useful in
the shack for jumpers,  transceiver to linear run,  etc;  but
to be avoided for power runs and long transmission lines,
just too much loss.
