    Coax Lines to Combiner- Exact Lengths?

    This concerns the Xtreme Signal HDB8X, although really "in general". I understand the need for precisely matched phase lines when connecting sections of an antenna, or 2 matching antennas together. That's easy. But when connecting 2 antennas (or halves) thru a splitter/combiner- is 1" a critical issue when the 2 cables are 3 ft., and 2' 11"? I suspect a yes to that, although I'd think a different factor involved, even IF unequal gain is still the end result. (crapshoot- capacitance, inductance? One of them "tances". Ha)

    Yes, the lengths really need to be equal if they are aimed in the same direction. If they are aimed in two different directions it's less of an issue.
