Ham Radio Antenna Feedline CAT 5 KIY Survival 5 make your own transmission line.

If you needed an emergency feedline for your portable or emergency field operation, what could you use to replace your regular 50-ohm coaxial cable feedline?

In this video from Bret of the "SurvivalComms" video channel, we learn about a variety of cables that can replace the coax used in most ham radio applications.

My favorite replacement coaxial cable feedline is ordinary 75-ohm RG-6 which can be used to feed dipole antennas with little signal loss.  Most of my RG-6 comes from cable left over from home internet installations.

Bret does a good job of explaining the pros and cons of substitute cable feedlines.  If you can't see the video, please insert the this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bolqLF9QqFU.

Here are a few comments from Bret:

Longer than my usual content as there is a lot to cover in creating your own RF transmission line. In this video we discuss making your own transmission (antenna, feed) line out of field expedient materials. Materials , formulas and whatnot. Give this a try - what you carry in your head will carry the day. #survivalcomms #survivalantennas #twistedpairfeedline
