for the rf2 output of sky box and also digital aireal aswell

Both the RF IN and the two RF outputs on a Sky box and the input on a digital or analogue terrestrial receiver are standard coax sockets so, in that respect, there's no choice.
The only place where an F connector is used, in the examples you mention, is the LNB IN on a Sky box

there is a choice I'm going to use my own length of coaxial (Rather than standard leads) and use a coaxial connection on the back of the box and f type at the wall end as i find the f type with its screw in connection a better join ad the coaxial plus and sockets are not all ways nice and tight.

unless anybody can tell me a reason for using coaxial instead of f type?

F type will be better than the Belling Lee (Aerial) plugs as they have the proper 75 Ohm impedance to match the cable.:thumbsup:
