The DX Engineering RG-6/U 75-ohm Quad-Shield Coaxial Cable Assemblies are constructed from our own premium DX Engineering brand RG-6/U 75 ohm cable and superior quality weather-sealed nickel-plated compression F connectors. Their best-in-class design reduces loss and provides greater protection against electromagnetic interference. Available in specific lengths between 3 ft. and 200 ft., these pre-assembled cables with F connectors are your most convenient ultra-high quality RG-6/U cable solution.
These RG-6/U cable assemblies are ideal for many applications such as active or passive HF Amateur Radio receive antenna systems, magnetic loop antennas, Beverage antennas, over the air TV reception, FM broadcast reception, CATV systems, raw video distribution and satellite radio installations like Sirius/XM. In fact, their low-loss characteristics are excellent up to the microwave frequencies that Satellite Radio systems employ!
Our RG-6/U cable assemblies have gas-injected polyethylene foam dielectric for flexibility and moisture resistance. Their 18 AWG center conductor is copper-clad steel and is durable in the extreme. They have two foil shields plus two high-density aluminum braids for ultimate four-layer RF shielding. Their UV protected black exterior jacket is tough PVC (polyvinyl chloride). DX Engineering RG-6/U cable impedance is 75 ohms with an 83 percent velocity factor. This is absolutely the best RG-6/U cable available and it's RoHS compliant!
