I installed my antenna last year and bought 100 feet of Andrew CNT-400 coax. It turns out I only needed 50 feet. The rest of it is in a huge knotted mess in the attic. Will this cause loss in any way? will the extra coax being in a huge bow mess do anything?

I'm thinking of switching it out with 50 feet of CNT-600.

The other 50ft of coax, in a roll, in a mess, either way, is adding loss to the run. Cut it off and install a connector where you need it, problem solved!

Leave it alone

How hard would it be to crimp CNT-400?
I say if you don't have the proper crimping tool, just leave it alone. Can you hear the folks you want to? Is the coiled coax not in your way? If the answer to those questions is yes, leave it be.
