RG-8 vs RG-6
Is it acceptable to use RG-8 cable for a DSS satelite system vs. the standard |
RG-6 cable? Will the picture quality improve with such RG-8 cable used
for wireless telecommunication installations.
Thank you for your input.

RG-8 cable is designed for 10Base-5 thick Ethernet applications, impedance of 50 Ohm and good attenuation specs.
RG-6 cable is used for CATV and DSS and has an impedance of 75 Ohm.
Based on this, RG-6 cable is the best choice for your needs.
