If your string is too short, after you cut the coax to that length you may find that you need to sprinkle on more magic pixie dust and apply the ol' standby 'coax stretcher' to get it it reach ..... or just move the amp close to the exciter  Cheesy

The 'magic' length for that coax is 6 and 7/8ths.  Everybody knows that.

The amazing thing is that it can be 6-7/8 anything - inches, feet, meters, or wavelength. Its the number that matters :-)
