After noticing a few discussions about this stuff, I thought maybe gathering some input would be helpful to several readers. I can remember reading recommendations for using RG-6 all the way back to the days of "Strong Signals". I never had long runs of coax at the time and never really gave it a second thought, but lately, after relighting the flame of interest in scanning and thinking about home brewing a couple of antennas that would want 75 ohm coax, I started looking at resources for this. I've watched cable and satellite installers putting the connectors on and make it look like so easy...and of course, tools make the job. So what I would like to see here is information on sourcing what folks need on here...the ability to make good cable assemblies...or buy pre-made assemblies. It would be good if sources were easily available... Lowes, HD, and especially Amazon. If sourcing from Amazon, could you post a link, as it's sometimes difficult to find really specific items or sellers there. I gather that there are some differences regarding whether quad shield type coax is used, so mention of this would be good also. Thanks in advance.
