Open-Line is much cheaper and low loss.

A couple of good baluns and job done.

It is just one more option.

The question was actually not about feedline.  However -  what feedline is
part of the dialog I think.  And whats the cost of feedline vs the more
complicated triplexer/pentplexer solution.

500ft is a long run.  Especially if that's the base of the tower.  Here I
have a run to my second tower that is 435 ft.  I run LDF5-50A all the way to
the base of the tower.

Its often about - how many $$ vs activating X number of antennas at Y amount
of loss that is acceptable.

I would make sure that all options are looked at from a budget standpoint.
