That's what I did and it does work great! One word of warning, don't
use the regular 90 degree couplings. If you're using RG8-X or
some other small coax you'll be OK but DON'T try it with RG-8,
9913, or the like. You can get a 90 degree elbow that is designed
specifically for this. It makes the 90 degree turn over a period
of about 8 inches. This prevents damage to the larger cables and
makes it much easier to re-pull if you have to.
