Default Yaesu FT-7900R maximum faceplate separation? ANSWERED: >100 feet.

How far can I separate the Yaesu FT-7900R faceplate from the rest of the radio?

I wonder if I could run 100 feet of cat 6 23 AWG between the faceplate and the bulk of the radio? Could I run the external speaker wire 100 feet too?

Why would I want to do this?

I could put the radio much closer to the existing ground system instead of routing 100' of copper around the outside of the house. I could reduce my coax loss because I wouldn't have to traverse the house horizontally.
