So the antenna spine (suspended line that was holding up the centre insulator) came apart. I've moved the centre insulator elsewhere. The move means my existing coaxial cable is now around 40ft short. I reckon the cable capacitance will make marrying an LMR400 with the existing RG58u a lossy affair.
- Is my understanding correct?
- Apart from the loss at the connector, what else could be affected by this patchwork?
EDIT: I neglected to mention the rig in use is near QRP with a max output of 15W. It may or may not be pertinent to the question posed here.
