Hear Hear! I wish I had remembered to post this!Note that all RG-58 is not created equal; nor is all RG-59. Different brands and qualities of coax have different losses. If you're listening to lower frequencies, the differences will be less. But if you're trying to listen to 800 MHz, for example; many people are better off using a rubber duckie antenna than they are mounting an antenna in the attic and using poor quality coax to connect it.
