I was wondering what the phase matched cable specs are because I need to make my own with much longer cables. I primarily work in VHF (2 meter ham band) and the length of the included coax is a constraint, as I am trying to make a spacing of greater than 50cm radius. All my coax exits through a window on one side of the car, and the kraken is already mounted in the car very close to this window.
Since phase matched cables from the leading names are PROHIBITIVELY expensive for the lengths i will need (15+ feet) I am thinking of getting a VNA and creating phase matched cables. I just need to know what will produce a result that is “good enough” if that makes sense. By the antenna spreadsheet, I should get a resolution better than 15 degrees, and I don’t want to compromise this by more than a couple of degrees by poorly matched coaxial cable.
What would be a really good trick is if the kraken itself with it’s phase coherent channels could be used to assist in the construction of phase matched cable sets, but as other tools exist that probably do this better, I’m willing to obtain them.
