I have a new home with many runs of RG6 to various locations, for various purposes (OTA antenna, component video, subwoofer in theater room). Here is the lettering string printed on the cable:

SCP E245362 (UL) OR C(UL) CM & CE & RoHS 75C RG6/U 1 X 18 AWG 60% CATV CABLE SWEEP TESTED TO 3.0GHZ *ZONE/DEVICE

I need to terminate several ends, some with F type connectors, some with RCA connectors. Do I have quad shield, so that I'll need to order quad shield connectors? Also, what tools do I need to order to install these connectors? From reading, it seems that I'll need a coax stripper and a compression crimper (with RCA compatible tip). Do I need anything else? Thanks.

It's not quad shield. The part number would probably read RG6/U QS or something, plus give you the % off braid for both braided layers.


You have standard/ref 60% dual shield, which is good cable.


The compression tool and good ends are all that matters. Some tools will have a stripper on them as well.
