Thanks for the question. Amazon emailed your question to me. Since the cable is only about 4 feet, I looked and I found a 20 foot extension here on Amazon for 4.00. I am going to order the extension so I can place the antenna in another location in the room. Wouldn't have thought about it without your question. My antenna did not break or anything and I moved the antennas on it a lot to get the best signal. YOU DON'T MOVE THE UHF BOWTIE ANTENNA, IT DOESN'T MOVE. THE BOWTIE IS FIXED (LIKE ALL UHF BOWTIES I HAVE SEEN) YOU TURN THE WHOLE ANTENNA BOX FOR BEST UHF CHANNELS, THEN MOVE THE TALL PIECES FOR VHF SINCE THEY DO MOVE UP DOWN, AROUND, AND SIDE TO SIDE. I'm telling you I could not be happier even if it cost me $50.00. "20ft 6.0m RP-SMA Extension Female to Male F/M Cable Connector Coaxial WIFI"
I'd say about 4.5 ft, so it has to stay pretty close to the TV unfortunately. Mine is somewhat stationary, so if you have to manipulate the antenna a lot to get a few stations, this might not be the best option for you. As I've stated in a previous post, this is good for people who live pretty close (15 miles or less) to a TV tower, in which case you have the possibility of getting a decent number of stations. Otherwise you will have to be satisfied with only a handful or less of channels.
