    Needed.

    Short run of 400 ohm ladder line or even flat line from old TV antenna install, I don't need 100' @ 67 bucks plus shipping.

    Does anyone have any?

    Make your own, we use rose clips for that to get 600 Ohm ladderline.
    These are sold here keeping the roses stems apart from each other, with a clip on each side to clip a stem/wire in keeping them apart, UV resistant as well.

    I don't see them on Amazon or a web search. Any suggestions to refine the search Cor? Thanks!

    That's what I found too Charles, but thought Cor was referring to something else. I don't see how that style works for our purposes here....

    https://youtu.be/c1Ays78mwZA for another idea.
    http://www.elektrodump.nl/nl/78-antenne-toebehoren, scroll down to the plastic roseclips, 15 eurocents each. "Afstandshouder" they are called there.
    Wire size 2 to 3 mm.

    Measuring the velocity factor and impedance inside the house, and having it cut to 14.200 (it is for a G5RV)

    And this is how it looks when in use:

    so find some plastic to use as isolator and make as much line as you need.
