Since I just finished the legwork on this purchase I though I'd share it.


Searching the forums I never found information on where to buy the materials for a DIY RBGHV 1694A coax cable. You can make a 20' 1694A cable for about $45!


The parts were purchased from Anixter.com (800.323.8166)

All coax is in 20' lengths with the cutting included.


Description Part number Price


Blue 1694A B1694A-6 $5.56

Red 1694A B1694A-2 $5.56

Green 1694A B1694A-5 $5.56

Yellow 1694A B1694A-4 $5.56

White 1694A B1694A-9 $5.56

Kings 75ohm

Crimp BNC 175816 $1.55x10
Total________________ $43.30


I also purchased five Canare BCJ-R/1 female BNC's for $3.50 each.


Cable--------------$43.30

Female BNC's----$17.50

SubTotal----------$60.80

Tax&Shipping----$08.85

Total---------------$69.65


Seems like a pretty good deal considering the seperate colors and the cutting involved. BTW I have a friend that works for the local cable company and hopefully has compatible crimpers/dies for the BNC crimp-on ends so keep that cost in mind.

The 1694A cable is pretty good stuff not only for video, but also digital audio runs. And it's not all that expensive.


For connectors I've been using the Cable Pro series from Liberty Electronics. BNC's, F, and RCA terminations all with the same tool which is part of the kit. The connectors and crimper system (if you want to call it that) are very easy to work with and produce a quality finished product both electrically and visually.

I use Liberty's system as well with their RG-59 flexible cable. They claim that it is suitable for video and digatal coaxial as well. Has anyone done any comparitive testing of Liberty Vs. brands XYZ?

I use libertys 75ohm serial digital cable with the compression 75ohm BNC fittings. I love them, there all in a signal jacket(RGBVH and a composite run)

Good stuff....
