    where to buy inexpensive long tv cable (RG59?)


    long being probably 20ft, the cheaper the better (I'm a student)....

    I'm only using it to hook up an ordinary CRT tv to regular wall cable....no HD or anything, so I don't need highest quality (as long as the picture still comes out relatively well)

    any suggestions? I don't have that clamping tool, otherwise it'd probably be really cheap

    I can get you one for free. In dracut.

    20ft? I got 6 wire, 59 is crap.

    I got the tools and the fittings, no problem. I used to work for comcast, i also got a few splitters, but i wont let those go for free maybe 5$ I plan on using them, but if you need them i could let them go, need and amp? got one of them too.

    Let me know, i am right next to methuen!

    Radio Shack.

    25' length of RG-59 for less than $20.

    Don't go with RG-59

    Go with RG-6 double shielded if you can get you hands on it.

    If you're a comcast customer go to the local office and ask. They'll give you massive cables for free.

    and partsexpress is pretty good...I used to order from their mail-order catalogue since '96 and they generally have pretty good prices on little electronic parts

    Unless you work for Comcast, it's hard to find compression fittings for RG11.

    Re: where to buy inexpensive long tv cable (RG59?)

    I would have run RG11 since the cable guy gave me a 500ft spool with 3/4 of it left. Only problem is RG11 connectors were not readily available so I used RG6 quad instead.
