RG-6 (also RG6) (both Quad Shielded and Dual Shielded) 75-Ohm COAXIAL cable RG6 Coaxial Cable is used primarily to carry TV (and FM) signals. COAX cable has replaced the old, flat, 300 Ohm TV cable due to the facts that Coaxial cable does not deteriorate with age as quickly as the flat 300 Ohm video cable, and COAX cable is SHIELDED (the other is not shielded). COAX cable is ROUND, not flat. RG6Q (Quad-shielded) COAX Cable NOTE: the outer diameter of Quad Shielded is thicker than Dual Shielded, so Quad Shielded RG-6 needs different sized connectors and wire stippers. RG6 (or better) is mandated for DirectDish runs longer than 60 feet, and a friend found out the hard way, that they mean it. (check to see what "they" require these days). I would use ONLY Quad Shielded RG-6 or RG-7 for all new cable runs. Shielded cable - Wikipedia RG6A AUGMENTED RG6 Coax Cable) Cat 6A (Augmented) bulk cable includes theCat following varieties: Cat 6A UTP (Unshileded Twisted Pair) Solid Conductor Riser Rated, Cat 6A UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) Plenum Rated, Cat 6A FTP Shielded Solid Conductor Riser Rated, Cat 6A FTP Shielded Plenum Rated, and Cat 6A FTP Shielded Stranded Conductor The TIA specifications for Cat 6A Ethernet Cable has limits on alien crosstalk in cabling systmes. Augmented Cat 6 Ethernet Cable has to operate at a minimum frequency of 500MHz fot. It helps future proof your network and supports 10 Gbit application up to a maximum distance of 100 meters on a 4-connector channel. Cat 6A Augmented Bulk Cable - RG-7 (Coax Cable) - comes Direct Burial (flooded), Tri-Shielded, Quad-Shielded and Low-loss, serial digital interface. RG 7/U (can be buried) What is RG-11 ? RG-11 cable has become especially important because it is included in the list of specifications required for the installation of CL1, CL2, CM, CMX and CMGs.
