John,jlokanis said:I have tried to sort out the markertek web site, but can't seem to figure out where the right RG6QS is. It seems every timeI think I found it, it turns out to be coffer covered steel conductor or it is 10x more than it should be. Can someone tell me (or post a link) to the exact wire that is RG6QS soild copper core swept to 3GHz?
Just wanted to update this with a few things. First, if you do call, you must ask for Nick and tell him you were referred by CocoonTech to insure the lowest price. Also, they were just bought out by a larger company called Keystone, so they will likely answer the phone that way now. The only change should be that there is even more stuff available now...Steve said:I buy most wire from a guy local here in Fla. I spoke to him the other day and he told me he ships free with all orders over $500 which is easy if you're doing a whole house prewire. He indicated ground shipping is very reasonable but depends what you order and where its going to.
Some sample prices:
Cat5E (Big E vs Small e) PVC in most colors tested to 350mHz is $54/1000'
RG6 Quad Shield Solid Core is $74/1000'
22/4 solid unshielded PVC is $40/1000'
The place is Platinum Wire and Cable and the phone number is 954-590-3947 and you can ask for Nick.
Of course I think the best place for all your other equipment is Automated Outlet. You can even get most of your cable there, especially if ordering other stuff.
