Webro

Triax RG59


Thanks in advance.

Hi

The cable run is 15m.

Out of interest why do you say the Triax RG59 is a strange choice? Is it an older cable and not as good as the Webro one?

RG59 has a lot more loss, especially at the top end of the band (2150MHz for satellite) than either RG6 or WF100.
You will probably get away with it over a short run with a decent amount of gain in the LNB.
Most of the cost of doing a job commercially is in time not cable, so it makes no sense to skimp on the cable, which is effectively what you are doing.

Hi,
Sorry I meant to say I was looking at the Triax TX59 Twin Cable.

How does that one look?
