coaxial jumpers

Post by 295 antenna » Wednesday, 02 May 2018, 18:32 PM

So Again i have been reading about jumper lengths and formulas. My question is there a formula for jumper length between transceiver and amp ? Now i have always used a three foot jumper but i understand there is a lot of discussion on this. Has anybody tried something different and had better results ?
I have tried shorter and it worked ok and i have tried a formula i read about so my jumper ended up at 9 feet no real change i could tell.
Thought ? experiences ? Formulas?

I use whatever length fits. Only reason I can see length matter is a co-phase antenna setup.

I make my jumpers long enough to reach from what it is connected to to what it needs to be connected to with maybe a couple inches of slack.
