    Im getting ready to run some interior wiring for my E* system. I have a buddy thats an electrician and got me some Belden Series 6 1189a cable. I told him I needed rg6 and said this is it. Is this ok to use, is it in the 2200 mghz(?) range?
    Thanks
    John

    NOPE ------ (read above post), it is correct, it is only rated thru 1000mhz, although it may work 'ok' for DBS use.

    It should be fine, since you have it, try it :) (without installing it first...)
