The length of coaxial cable does not matter. Any story about this is snake-oil vudu,
whoever told you to cut it at the multitude of 1/2 or 1/4 wave knows nothing.

The only rule is: As short as possible.

Tell me, to what length do the hams operating multi-band HF antennas cut it?

A lot of misinformation is coming especially from CB sources, such as the one
you quoted.
