Listen to @AD1 and did I say listen to @AD1? eHam.net Reviews @Seepalaces IMO, use the internet and search for the rig or antenna and reviews. Choose an antenna and read the reviews. Also some coax is more lossy than others. Coax Attenuation Chart Attenuation is loss per 100'. That is fact, not my opinion. The trick is to lose the least amount. As you're looking at a dual bander; personally. I'd choose the least loss coax you can afford. In addition, do a search for Ham Fests in your area. You can find the best deals there. All of my rigs were bought at a Ham fest.
