How many bends and turns can there be,in a coax cable run??
 Answer by Joseph Golan posted 24 Oct 2005
Dear Joe,

There is nothing is the standards about the number of turns or bends (unless it is being run in conduit) for coax cable. My advice is to not make any of the bends sharp as to distort the cable, use about a 2" radius on the bends and you should be fine. Sharp bends will have an effect on the performance of the cable.
