I live in Henderson, NV. which is a suburb of Las Vegas. We are fairly high where we live, about 2500' above sea level. There is no way for me to put up a 100' antenna. What I plan to start with is a FireStik KW7-B Seven foot original CB antenna. When mounted it will be about 35' off the ground.
I will start with a Galaxy DX-959 40 Channel AM/SSB Mobile CB Radio and of course a 120V/12V power source. I will also have a separate Solar Charged 12V battery with a dedicated 60 Watt 14V Solar Panel.
My main question is that there is no way I can configure the set up location without using about 35' of cable between the antenna and radio. What is the best cable to use, so I do not lose too much transmitting power? The unit I will use (above) will actually put out an honest 5W/5.5W CB when tweaked and 13W/14W on SSB.
Your comments and suggestion are welcome.
