The problem at the higher frequencies is one of accuracy because the 
dimensions are so small, especially at 2.4 GHz and higher. So ... if a 
quarter wavelength is too fiddly then try it with *three* (or any odd 
number of) quarters of a wavelength.

But if its a piece of coax you're trimming you still have to trim in tiny
pieces so use thin high-quality coax (the stuff that fits SMA connectors), 
and a hobby knife rather than wire cutters and thick snips.
