Coax Length - Coax Type


Established Member

Not posted in a while!

Hopefully moving to a new place in the next couple of months and obviously will need to run a few cables for the satellite dish(es).

Current plan is probably two Zone 1 Sky Dishes - One dedicated to 28.2E and other with 13.0E and 19.2E. I may consider making use of my motor on that dish, but because the dishes will be on the front of the house I'll be retiring the Triax TD88 for a while.

Basic estimates of cable lengths from Dish to TV server location are 20-25M and there will be diseqc switches. There will be 4 feeds coming from Quad LNBs.

Will WF65 shotgun cable be suitable? or will I need WF100/125?

Do TD88s not work on the front of houses? :D

WF65 would be borderline given the distance and loss introduced by the switches. Use decent quality WF100, it too can be purchased as shotgun.
