| CATV over CAT5|
|I want to send an existing RF signal of multiple channels over CAT5 to a TV monitors 750 ft away.|
What type of baluns will allow me to do this.
Answer by Joseph Golan posted 23 Jan 2006
Category 5e is designed only to work at a maximum Link length of 90 Meters (295'). Most baluns for CATV conform to this standard for the lower frequencies. I know of no product that will accomplish what you are asking.
In fact even stanbdard CATV cable (RG-6) will have a very difficult time trying to accomplish this without proper amplification.
