Gold Series RG6 F-Type Coax Cable
F Type Coax Cable - 3FT RG6 Gold Satellite & Antenna Cable
Gold Series RG6 F Type Coax Cables are commonly used for cable, satellite, and TV antenna signals. The 24k gold plated F-type connectors provide a secure connection that won't deteriorate over time. Molded strain relief provides increased longevity against wear. Internally, the foil and braided shield protect the cable from EMI/RFI interference that can cause a distorted picture. The Gold Series cables are feature packed high-end cables at a budget friendly price.

Q: What does “RG IN mean?
A: The 'RG' is short for 'Radio Guide ' a term that dates back to the World War II era when the military made heavy use of coaxial cable and developed a set of standards to specify different grades of coax and their applications. Even though we still refer to coaxial cables by their original RG numbers today these standards are now obsolete in regard to actual military use.
Q: What is the difference between RG59 RG6 and RG11?
A: Each of these coaxial cables has a characteristic impedance of 75 ohms. RG59 cable has a smaller diameter center conductor than RG6 resulting in higher signal loss. RG59 cables are typically specified for use as equipment patch cords because of their smaller bend radius and enhanced flexibility. Since RG6 cables exhibit less attenuation than RG59 they are more commonly used for distributed cabling and are recommended for use up to 295 ft. RG11 cables support even less signal loss than RG6 or RG59 because the center conductor diameter is almost twice that of RG59. RG11 cables are recommended for lengths up to 400ft.
