    Funny... It looks like a joke item to me. If it actually exists, it won't benefit anyone in any way whatsoever, even if the person using it thinks it will.

    That thing might be needed if the coax is about 25% shielded. LOL
    Buy one of those plus a Wilson 1000/5000 ground plane kit and you will own the channel.

    Pure 100% male bovine excrement. Anyone that knows anything about coax cable should know that being shielded means that adjacent turns are invisible to each other RF wise. If this extension cord holder of his makes ANY difference in any way you have a problem in your system that should be fixed at the source and not masked with this thing.

    You beat to it. Don't forget you have to use 18ft of coax.

    I smell obscene amounts of copious bullshit.

    My wee hp4000 only has 12' of mil spec rg58 on it and has banged into s.africa.oz and all over s and n america. Surely I wasn't dreaming and running an underlegth coax run.

    Wonder how many mugs will buy it. Lmao.

    Look at the seller, he is known for being a scam artist. Old Mr. Gentry. It's snake oil bs that someone came up with. Wonder how many will sell?? I am in the wrong business. All u need to do these days is sit at home, come up with something that will fool a few hundred people and bam I am good to go. Shouldn't be too hard if someone is selling things like this and claiming it helps "swr's", better receive and we all know 18ft is a must. WOW, just WOW!!!
