I am now up to the stage of feeding my 8 element quad for 145.825 MHz.

I have been doing some reading and I see that most talk of a 100 ohm feed

The most popular seems to be a 1/4 wave section of 75 ohm cable in series ?

Does this look right:-

Freq = 145.825 MHz
1/4 wave in coax = (200 / 145.825 MHz) /4  = 34.28 cm's of 75 ohm cable.
