    Guys,

    just looking at running some coax, but any hints which is the best to get, standard low loss was going to be my first choice, but after looking around maybe I would be better with some higher quality stuff i.e RG6 or CT100 (just numbers to me) this would be to run analogue tv signals nothing sky digital!!

    cheers

    In theory, CT100 cable conforms to the guidelines laid down for a cable to be of the RG6 standard. Using CT100 to route TV signals around will be just fine. :)

    Use ct100 in all domestic applications as the runs should not exceed 50m.
    This is sheilded cable and will run satellite signals digital and analogue with ease.

    thanxs guys,

    where would be the best(cheapest) place to order some from?

    Found this at TLC is this the same as CT100:-

    Foam-core cable for the hard-core installer
    Ideal for installations where the satellite cable must be very durable (e.g. underground or in wet conditions)
    With a gas-injected foam-core dielectric, the PF100 is very robust, watertight and ready for digital satellite

    Best Materials - PF100 cable uses MYLAR together with bare copper in the braiding
    to enhance durability and prevent cracking

    are you best using F type plugs with this cable and if so can you buy F type to tradional coax push fit plugs(for loft dist/amp)?

    cheers

    Gary
