For those new to the hobby RG-58 is NOT suitable for scanner use.

But if anyone is wanting a drum of RG-58 coax. Moonraker is selling 50 meters for £10 & 100 meters for £20.

It has 50 Ω nominal impedance with known losses 2dB/10m to 100MHz.

I do occasionally run an RF amp when necessary but for general listening on 2m/70cm and occasionally air band its great. In fact I use a 2 metre run to a cellular colinear for ADS B as well as my antenna for 4m for transmit. No problems and that is 15 long.

I have no problems whatsoever on a 10m run all the way to 470MHz.
