20 ft of coax well I am running 18ft of coax. It really depends on where the antenna is, what is the antenna, the match of the antenna to the radio. Best thing to do is find a good CB shop by you. As for the Cobra 148 it is a good radio for talking on the standard 40 channels.

Use a good grade of coax and cut it 18 foot long and put a good grade of PL 259/s on each end.
