Have built a fairly nice 5 turn helical antenna for 5.8 GHz. Would like to finish it with stuff I have in shop. Two questions:
1. Can the cable from a D-link 2.4 GHz wifi antenna complete with SMA connector be used with 5.8 GHz?
2. Can it be left at its 6 foot length?
Seems like all home made antennas have very short cables on them. Thanks.
