Labgear PF100 Satellite Coaxial Cable 50m Black
Great for normal TV aerial
All this sat-tv and RG6 / RG59 etc cable or whatever is confusing. Well this cable is what I would consider 'normal' aerial cable for a normal tv - connect to aerial, connect to telly or freeview box, job done. I don't know about cable-tv or satellite stuff.
I found this much better quality than the old stuff I was taking down that had been up there over 10 years. The shielding has two layers - the normal copper strands / mesh type stuff + a continuous layer of copper sheet, a bit like a thin layer of paper, that is meant to help shield this signal - this is what most cheaper cables don't have. All seems pretty well made compared with the cheap stuff.
Other items I needed:
I found Tower 7mm cable clips( part number 14161) fitted the cable perfectly and could be hammered into the mortar between bricks. I also used labgear tv splitter 44534 which worked well. I required F-type coaxial plug to connect cable to my particular aerial 17061. and both male 78603 and female 52856 coaxial plugs to connect aerial to splitter, and splitter on to tv aerial (ie the splitter req 1 of each type). I would suggest getting these all at same time so you've got everything you need at home when you do the job.

Quality Cable for price
Previously bought cheap and cheerful coax aerial cable a regretted it. Went for this mid range to replace it and was very impressed. Copper braiding and 100% screen foil to minimise interferance. F connectors easy to fit. Used it with two labgear splitter boxes to get freeview HD around the house. perfect picture. No breakup, freezing etc. Very, very pleased. Great value for money. Don't go cheap with coax. not worth it.
