    Well I just bought it.


    Should be here in 2 days.

    I need to pick up some rg6 though. Theres some extra rg59 around here I think, but Ive read rg6 is much better to use.

    Look into some Times Microwave LMR-ULTRAFLEX 240 or 300. A local Two-Way shop should be able to get it for you. It's a little expensive but worth every penny!!!!

    Two-Way Radio, like a Kenwood or Motorola dealer.

    I think that last time I looked LMR-300 (not ultra-flex) was about $1.90 or so a foot... But, it's been a while.

    The differences is much much less loss and you keep a much more pure signal meaning that you TV will get a better signal. I've used this cable from VHF firetruck installs to Jumpers in UHF/800 LTR Trunking installs and have had up to 8 db increase in signal. Which means that the SIGNAD would go way up! Which is what you want!!! We used it on hard satilite installs too, and have had extremely good luck with it there too.... The only thing is you will have to finigal the "F" connector for it...
