I'm not necessarily taking issue with Dr R. I'm suggesting an
alternative way to fix the problem. Getting rid of the coax
shielding doesn't get rid of the transmission line, but it certainly
does change it and this may be enough to "fix the problem".
BTW, RG8 is 50 ohm cable and the dialectric is PE not foam. 75 ohm
cable typically uses foam to get the higher Zo.
50 and 75 is independent of foam (in that, you can get solid or foam
dielectric for either). The foam is used for lighter weight and
lower loss at high frequencies (e.g. for Cable TV at hundreds of MHz,
dielectric loss is important). Solid has a higher breakdown voltage.
Foam has a higher propagation velocity (because epsilon is lower).
Impedance (Z0) is a function of the ratio of inner and outer
conductor diameters (and dielectric constant).
