I see a lot of newer HF radios have a head seperation option, typically so you can have the front panel on the dash and the radio under the seat in a mobile installation.  Does anybody know the practical maximum length that such a setup can be extended ?  If it could go 50 feet or so, the rig could go in the basement shack and the head upstairs...
I suspect the 'remoting cable' contains power, audio, and control wiring, and I also suspect the control is probably muxed on only a couple wires, but I've never taken one apart so I don't know.  Has anybody played with this idea ?

I would think that although probably not "STANDARD", the majority use some type of SERIAL communication... so 50FT should be just fine.  

Your question SHOULD be asked of the TECHNICIAL SERVICE REP. for whatever company makes your radio... they will know, or have the resources to find out an ACCURATE answer for you.

what might work for ICOM may not work for YAESU, Etc.  (interchange brand names at will - as that was only an example)
