you can just use any 50ohm coax that's suitable for wifi. i like the lmr series the best. but i built mine w/o any coax...just soldered the N jack directly on. see the URL BW posted above

WOW i built this thing last night and let me just say that this is the greatest antenna for driving or walking this thing picked up about 12 more ap's along the same route i travel to and from work each day at about 80 mph east on the 10 fwy it seemed as though it was never gonna stop sounding off new hits! NOTICE to everyone build this thing! build it now!!
