    The replied to this thread all involved people from commercial organisations trying to sell this guy a cable. Frankly I'm astonished that this would happen in such a blatant way and if people asking for advice get pounced on by people trying to sell goods again there will be bans.

    I am not from a commercial organisation, I just have some 100 meters or so cable left over from my 250 meter drum. The guy wanted to have a cable and I offered him to make up one. It wasn't me who directed him to a site that a cheap poor quality cable.

    I don't sell cable, I don't work in the industry, all I offer is my opinion, take it or leave it. I don't know Stevey and I wasn't trying to push his cable (I don't even use the same cable, and when I mean use I mean use myself not sell), I was merely saying in my opinion what makes a good aerial cable. I think the QED ones are probably the best already "made up" aerial cables your going to find http://www.qed.co.uk/cables/av/qunex_br.html but personally I would make my own.

    John,

    I use van den hul Videolink 75 with Insert Audio F-types for all my RF connections on Sky and my DAB tuner. The cable worked out to be around £12 for a metre and £6.00 for each termination.
    The company that I used is called custom cable, http://www.custom-cable.co.uk/ very good service and very quick.

    Hope that helps, also try doing a search for RF cables on these forums as this subject has been discussed in the past.

    Hope that helps.

    Who wants to pay £72 for that lead, we have done a deal @ £8 that Is much better quality than that.
