Aerial cable to buy?


Established Member
Hello all,

I am moving very soon and am in the market for a quality aerial cable to connect to the aerial socket in the wall of my new flat. Is there any particular one that anyone could recommend and where I could get it from?

Thanks for your extremely swift reply horny!

Excuse my ignorance, but where might I be able to find bambridge and kimber? I have never heard of them.

Very interesting reading, I still stand by building your own cable though - you can choose which wire to use (that guide being very helpful) and perform some reasonable terminations on the end with solid connectors. It worked for me and came to about £6 for 10m - and I've got some of the decent cable they mention!

I am all for building your own cable, I have made the odd post on this before ;), you just need to make sure you use the right one :)


The best pre-built cable i've used is QED's but at £30-35 per metre terminated it's a bit costly but there was a marked improvement.
Saying that I've never compared it to a hand built cable only alternative pre-builts and standard sat cable
