I found the following on Beldens web site...


1829A - copper covered steel

1829AC - solid copper conductor

1829BC - good for direct burial

1840A - dual 1829A with static ground wire

1841A - dual 1829A without static ground wire


Do I need dual for the dual LNBs ?

with the static ground, or ground at the dish ?


Solid copper sounds better... is it ?

wish I knew better what to look for in the specs.


Thanks !

Matthew

Two separate lines using 1829AC sounds like the best bet, but

The belden site is a bit hard to navigate.... try this link.

http://bwcecom.belden.com/college/college.htm


click on Featured Products then Home Automation.

I found some good info on all the links. The first

link, HomeChoice Brochure, has a chart at the end

which suggests cables..... found it while researching

my structure wiring cable.


If you click on the Tech Data Sheets and enter the cable

part number, it gives all the specs for the cables Belden

makes.

I've used lots of 1841A - it's very convenient to use when you are making dual runs everywhere - to dualLNB's and to lots of DirecTivo's with dual tuners. The copper/steel is a bit more sturdy and has the best signal characteristics for satellite frequencies - remember high-frequency signals are carried on the surface of a conductor, not inside the wire.
