The extention cable used on this homemade job is an "active" cable. No losses with this. If you build one, be sure to get the "active" and not a "passive", or you will experience some loss. I went with this system because it uses an omni-directional antenna. I was thinking this should work well swinging on the anchor
or mooring ball. I wouldn't think a directional antenna would work too well out there.
By the way, XORT, excuse my ignorance, but what the hell is a "stuffer slappy"?
