15 feet you can use any RG6 or even RG59 in a pinch. Just get them with compression connectors for waterproofing and better connection. That said, I have in a pinch, used a 25' chuck of old used RG59 with twist on F connectors over the winter after a rat (no kidding) chewed through one of my RG6 runs. I had the same signal readings on the RG59 as the RG6QS (one was hooked to each tuner), so other than DirecTv's over the top requirements to prevent callbacks on tech installs, in the real world, its not that important.
I really think compression connectors are the way to go, just because of their waterproofing, and the fact they dont damage the coax end like crimp on connectors can (and most pre-made coax sets use crimp on). It will work tho, if thats all you have.
