What is? Coax

Jargon Buster: Coax

Coaxial Cable (better known as aerial cable) is the cable that is used in all types of TV signal distribution systems. This cable is often best when relatively thick and contains multiple layers (at least one of which shields the signals being conducted down the cable from external interference so giving a purer final signal).  On older setups, unexpected signal loss can be attributed to coaxial cable which has broken down through being exposed to the elements for too long. At Digital & Satellite we only use high quality CAI Bench marked double screened cable.
