Thank you for your response. Again, money is not the issue or
priority. Knowing that I am getting the best signal within reason (my
reason <wink and grin> )
Tangentially, you have provided me with the information I require. As I
do not know what I will hang off the end of that antenna in the future
and I am in fact going to be doing some measurement/experimentation, I
will use something better than RG-59 or RG-6 (even if it is only
"better" in my opinion).
I am an incurable over-engineer... and this IS "Time NUTS" after all.
Thank to you AND to ALL who have made recommendations thusfar....
especially the ones with whom I disagree. Those are the recommendations
that keep me from completely abandoning rational decision-making. <big
