Dumb A'd CB question

Is the length of coax a critical figure (other than being long enough to reach the antenna)?

Lots of debate. But length is not critical unless you have an antenna that is tuned (and not re-tunable) for a specific length.
18' is probably the most common. But if you have a tunable antenna, then as short as needed is fine.

May already know this, but just be sure not to bundle or crisscross the cable.
