Coaxial cable, sometimes known as coax cable, is an electrical cable that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals from one point to another.

The technology has been around since the early 20th century, with these Coax cables mainly being used to connect satellite antenna facilities to homes and businesses thanks to their durability and ease of installation.

What is RG cable?

There are different types of coaxial cable, which vary by gauge and impedance. Gauge refers to the cable’s thickness and is measured by the radio guide measurement or RG number. The higher the RG number, the thinner the central conductor core is.
