    Just curious if there would be any difference in using this cable: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-ft-Belden-...item1c3500badc

    and a regular sized RG59 cable like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Belden-1505A...item2322b486fa

    I want to go with the mini cable because it seems a bit more flexible.

    For something with that short of a run it should work fine

    No should about it... It will work fine... it's a 75 Ohm low insertion loss cable that is relatively flat across the band to 4.5GHZ... you'd have to have a really long cable for the insertion loss to be of any concern.

    Can verify, I run two 100' Belden 1855A looms with an additional 60' loom for a total of 260' - that is about 50' over their own spec of 209' at 1.5g
    It gets cut down to to 154' at 3G

    I think you will be fine ; )
