I've found Andrew Heliax LDF4-50 to be very satisfactory.  You need to buy compatible connectors at the same time.

Contact a CommScope/Andrew http://www.commscope.com/company/eng/aboutus/company_info/contact_us/index.html and ask about more recent cables that will be suitable. There is new range called "Heliax 2.0"

Best regards, Eric.

Here is the technical specification for Andrew Heliax LDF4-50 cable (130k pdf).  There are details of the possible connectors as well.  I preferred the ones with captivated centre pins.

The attenuation at 6 GHz is 6.11 dB for 100 ft (approx 30m) so that should meet your requirement exactly.

Ask Commscope about more modern cables and connectors as there may now be better alternatives.

Best regards, Eric.
