Aerial Cable


Distinguished Member
I was reading one of the sticky posts with interest - RE the difference in quality between cables.

I have just fitted a loft aerial to run down to the kids bedroom and wanted to make sure it is connected with semi decent cable.

All i seem to see in the local DIY and Argos shops is the very cheap stuff and I am concerned about a possible reduction in the quality of the picture.

Where can you buy decentish aerial cable..i need some 10 to 15 metres?

Most of the quality cable i see is just in lengths of 1m to 3m.

ANy help would be very useful!

Good aerial cable has a generous amount of copper braid and a thick layer of copper foil for the sheild, air spaced dieltric and a solid copper conductor (dead center within the cable). I reccomend Raydex CT100. The stuff from B&Q and Maplin is rubbish.
