I was reading about this recently (over on here = http://www.4x4cb.com/public/item.cfm?itemID=759 ) where, with regard to the RM Model KL200, they say,
IMPORTANT : You will need a 90cm connecting lead for the CB-to-amplifier connection - it is important that a 90cm one is used rather than any other length to ensure the SWR that the CB experiences while driving the amps' input is low.
Now I've been "doing" CB since the A.M. days, and for ~16 years ran an electronics shop where I did a fair bit with CBs. I do know about a coax feeders length being tied in, on some types of installation, with multiples of wavelengths, but what's this 90cm (3 foot!!) patch lead thing? Is it summat I don't know about? (genuine question by the way).
