if Hard Line is not an option for any rea$$$on ok,
try the cheap option, 75 ohms CATV hardline i get a
lot paying just a few dollars to the cable company
that deliver the pig tails or the last pieces of the
spools (100-300 ft each) 1/2 inch and 3/4
i have my packet antena using 3/4 hardline around 150
other 6m antena using 1/2 inche around 200 ft and the
top of my antenas for 6m more than 200 ft of 3/4
direct no ajust and my swr is around 1.4-1.7 to 1:1
at the resonant freq
i don't have a 1.1 :1 but i pay nothing to have a
low loss cable
that is a good option for a low budget
if you have the money use LMR 600 or 1/2 inch heliax,
if the money is no problem use your imagination and
there are several options.
for the rotor loop , some lmr or flexible versions of
LMR 400 or 600
good luck in your project
