300 ohm wire, max length??


I have a Channel Master CM-5020 antenna which connects to the balun and then directly to the tv. The antenna is only about 18 months old. In that short time I have had to replace the built-in balun with a CM-94444. It looks like that balun too is failing because I have the same symptoms of intermittent, random loss of channels.

My question is, can I run some 300 ohm wire from the antenna to inside the house and then attach to the balun? I really hate going up on the roof to replace baluns BTW I'd estimate the wire run would need to be around 50 ft...

Here is my TVFool report:

Thanks for your help,

Don Verbeck
