    Can anyone confirm that I can use high quality (CT125) satellite cable for an aerial downlead. I need some long runs for a multiroom system. I believe CT125 is better than CT100, can anyone confirm that this is the case and am I getting too carried away!

    Also sat downleads are 75ohm, are TV aerial downleads 75 or 50ohm?

    Cheers

    Dave

    P.s. Maplin are flogging CT125 at half price till today! so I'm trying to find out quick!

    Cheers

    All good aerial cable should be 75ohm, or very close. This stuff you are looking at sounds ideal for your sat/tv cabling.
