RG-59 & Loop Antenna

I would like to say that I have been using one half of a piece of twin
RG-59 Type cable (Zipped) with my 80 Meter Horizontal Loop for about 5-6
years now. It works fine for me and THE PRICE WAS RIGHT. I say go for it!
If you have an ATU available, so much the better. I keep saying that I
am going to give the "Twin Coax" (Coax shielded open wire feedline idea a
try one day). Tying the shields together and grounding one end then using
the antenna tuner as if with open feedlines.
Some say that works great.
