Yes, with the standard type of heliax that's correct. They do make a "superflex" version that's designed to better handle the unroll/roll up cycle better. If you've seen those TV remote trucks with the tower that is repeatedly raised and lowered every time that the truck is setup that's the type of coax used on their setups.
