Yes, if you can successfully deal with such small wire and connectors, it can be shortened...

Keep in mind that the receiver sensitivity and antenna are matched in such a way that the automatic gain control of the receiver is expecting a signal of nominally a certain value and to shorten the cable is to eliminate some loses, so the signal will be stronger... It is possible to have too strong of a signal, but the agc of the receiver most likely can handle it.. I would be more concerned about lengthening the cable as signal would be lost..

and that is what I ended up doing.. I would like to have had it shorter, but wasn't going to deal with the connector on that small coax.. a bad connection is far worse than some extra coax..
