HAM Antenna Cable Tips:
Whether you want to install an antenna on your roof, on a pole, or in your attic, using the correct cable type is crucial to  the
performance of our HAM station. The two types of wire commonly used to connect an antenna to a transceiver are 450 ohm
ladder line and 50 ohm coax cable.  Ladder-line is a flat wire, sometimes called "twin-lead."  For the best performance and reliability,
use high-quality RG-8X, RG8U (for HF legal limit), or in the case of very high power,and VHF, use RG213.  A
ntenna cable should run
as directly as possible from the antenna, or antenna BALUN to the transceiver or tune.
Avoid sharp bends in the cable as they
can impair performance by crimping or creating a TDR lump or impedance change. 
For antennas installed outdoors
(including the roof), run the cable into the house through an attic or basement entry; never run the cable through a
window or door.
Outdoor antennas should be grounded for lightning protection.  
Use a gas-stop or gap type 7516 grounding
(lightning) block where the antenna cable enters the house, transceiver, or tuner.  Run a wire from the grounding screw
or tap, to your station's ground rod.  This is not only an important safety consideration but also a NEC code requirement

Outdoor connections should be protected from exposure to the
elements by applying CS-104 coax seal to prevent oxidation
