actually coax IS coax. i did specify that grades vary though.
a coax cable is still coax cable regardless if it is high or low grade cable.


Coaxial simply means one conductor inside another. There are.hundreds of coax types with different characteristic impedance, constructed with different dielectric, inner and outer conductor materials and diameters etc etc.

In the narrow context of VM cabling, only a very limited number of coax types are suitable. Most cables used for standard TV aerial downloads would not be suitable and I would hope the VM installer should know this

Re: Coax Cable

you're just repeating what said.
you've agreed that coax IS coax, and it's the grade of cable used that is important.
thanks for agreeing with me.

Re: Coax Cable

I'm sure my co-ax used for terrestrial aerial and for satellite dish is better quality than my VM installer used for my VM instillation, certainly looks better quality.
