Can I run both thru the same box? I plan to put a ground rod outside where my receiver is and run a #10 coated wire over to my breaker box ground on the other side of my house. Should I use a better quality shielded Coax? Thanks, Tom

Yes, you can run both in the same conduit/box.
You may need something larger than #10, that totally depends on how long the run is.

Better quality than what? The coaxial shield is grounded, it won't care if there's a ground wire in the same pipe.

The wire bonding the 2 ground rods together will be 32' long. We have a heavy clay soil type.
