Myself...I have used LMR-400 ultra flex the last couple feet and it works
great.  If not, I'd use LMR-240 ultra flex (physical size of, about, RG-59).
I would not use RG-58 unless I have nothing else.  Especially at UHF...RG-58
is not much more than a dummy load, in my opinion.  RG-223 is also better
than nothing at UHF.  You don't' say how much power you are running.
Smaller coax is not typically good for a whole bunch of power...but 50 watts
is no problem.  73!

Hi All
I am getting my new 30 ft tower and wish to changeover from RG213 to LMR600 
I have, for the Vhf and Uhf cross yagis. Will be installing my masthead 
preamp too and its going to be convinient to use a short length of thinner 
coax patch upto the Beams near the AZEL.
So any tips , suggestions on the type of thin cable RG-58 or RG-213.
Thank you
Best 73
:o)  Vhf & Uhf cross yagis, Masthead preamp for Vhf, AZEL with digital 
readouts all  home brew  ;o)
