Home Depot is where mine came from.. (about 50$ IIRC).. works nice
DIY, good man. You'll love the independence from the dreaded truck roll.idigg said:I don't want to deal with DirecTV, as I'm really good at doing things on my own.
You might check that RG6. Recently, all I find at Home Depot is copper coated steel coax. It will work if you don't have to deal with longer runs. D* specifies solid copper center conductor. Read the box or use a pen knife or magnet to find out what you have.I have a 500ft spool of RG6QS cable from home depot, I probably have 300feet left.
Digicon are very good connectors, beautifully made, weather tight, and solid connections and work well with the D* system. That's what I've used for last 3 plus years. That said, they are not on the D* Approved Materials List. Look at PV6PV or EX6XL connectors that are on the list. See http://www.sadoun.com/Sat/Order/Install/Connectors.htmAs far as f connectors, I'm looking at the Digicon RG6Q green connector, any good? Do I need a special compression tool for those? Any help is appreciated, and where to get these on the cheap is even better
