The inductance of a coax 'stub' is frequency dependent !
According to the formula for a loss-less cable (given in an earlier mail,
should be OK for 136kHz) 70m of RG58 cable should be about 17uH. For higher
frequency this value will increase, until it reaches 'endless' for a
quarter-wave stub (at +/- 700kHz).
Based on a value for 37uH the frequency used to measure should be arround

Not a test set for measuring at 136k. But abt 70m of RG58 on drum measures:

With short at far end -  37.16uH
With open cct at far end 6.265nF.
