New radio and antenna

Question

Setting up a new system, Yaesu FT-7900 with a dual band J-pole. My cable run will be between 65 and 75 feet long. Looking for suggestions on which coax to use, thinking that RG8 or RG213 would be sufficient with LMR-400 being ideal but overkill. If anyone has any spare cable they would be interested in selling or suggestions let me know please. Thanks

I would choose RG-213 or better for a 75' run, especially if you are going to UHF.
