The ducer cable is much longer than needed. Will having the excess coiled up reduce performance? There’s about 15’ excess.

I coiled mine up and zip tied and haven’t had an issue. I don’t think the performance is affected the same as VHF antenna extra cable is. And what they said, don’t cut it.

What’s the issue with cutting the wire? As long as you solder and heat shrink connections, there should be zero resistance and zero problems.

In a perfect world yes. You also would need to put the shielding back together.

All unnecessary as coiling it up and securing it has no ill effects.
