Don't worry so much about whether a cable is RG6 or RG59. Good
quality RG59 is perfectly adequate, especially at frequencies well below
those used by the output of DirectTV or DishNetwork LNBs ... that is,
the signals of OTA TV are much lower frequency than the downconverted
satellite ones and hence much more forgiving. If you have RG 59, try
it. If it works, fine. IF it doesn't .... RG6 might help you a teensy bit. An antenna mounted amplifier would help far more, and make RG6 unnecessary.
