RG6/U Dual Shield Coaxial Cable, 18 AWG

Perfect for cable television (CATV), satellite (SATV), and antenna applications, the RG6/U dual shield coax cable with messenger wire is 3 GHZ, 18 AWG bulk bare copper cable with a 60 percent aluminum braid. It features a PVC jacket and Skin Foam PE insulate, and comes in lengths of 500 feet with a dielectric strength of 1 and an impedance of 75 ohms (±3.0 ohms).

  • Designed for antenna, CATV and SATV applications
  • Solid bare copper center conductor (18 AWG, 75 Ohm) in a PVC jacket
  • Copper clad steel messenger wire (17 AWG) supports drop from a utility pole
  • Dual shielded with 60 percent aluminum braid to prevent interference
  • Foam polyethylene insulation; Sequential foot marking

It All Starts With The Wire!

If you want to enjoy the wonders that technology can bring to your home today and in the future, let me tell you ... IT ALL STARTS WITH THE WIRE. A small expenditure today, while your home is being built, will insure that you can have multimedia excitement delivered to every room in your home. Avoid more costly and messy retrofitting on later on, put Multi Mode Bundled Cable inside your walls while you are building. Even if you don’t use all of the capability of this cable you can leave it unfinished inside the walls until such time as you upgrade your home’s technology level later on. Can you imagine tearing open the walls to do this? It will add value to your home. Multi-mode cabling gives you the flexibility to meet the demands of the future.
