To be fair I edited then commented and Darzen commented at almost the exact same time I commented so very likely he didn't see my post. So please hug and make up. Man hug!!

Webro WF100 a tad more expensive

WF100 all the way, but this is cheap for RG6.
No stock anywhere, no delivery, so deal is over

Do people still hardwire?? Do people still watch OTA transmission???? Seriously???
This won't be EN50117 compliant
Seriously, copper clad steel? How cheap can you get? The standard asks for annealed copper conductors. Copper clad aluminium is not as good, but still serviceable. Steel is not really a good conductor, and will cause significant damping.

Hi, what do you use the wf100 for?

Hi, what do you use the wf100 for?


Almost anything that calls for a coaxial install.
My Sony tv has freesat built in. Can I split the sky cable to use on the TV too? Or at least use one of the cable for the tv? I don't really use the sky plus feature as not subscribing.
Seems to work fine, bought the black one to make a run through to the garage from a six way distribution amp under the stairs.

Rest of the house was done with WF100 as part of the rewire
I currently have sky, with the cables plastered into the wall. If I go with Virgin, can I use the existing cables and connect into the virgin box? I know the engineers won't use skys cables, but that doesn't mean they are not the same does it?
Yes I'd rather spend the extra £3 to get the best TV reception and most channels I can. It's not like an hdmi cable, cheap coax really can degrade your signal.

I can't see from the pics if this is a foam core insulator or that hollowed plastic stuff. If is hollowed plastic, make sure it is absolutely watertight at the dish / aerial.

I once used plastic core, was a bit slack with waterproofing, and ended up with water running down the back of my sky box (and dvd player and av amp that were sitting beneath).

Yes, seriously. Millions do.
I've ran 2 lines of this from my dish to a humax freesat recorder, it's maybe 20-25m end to end. Signal and channel choice is perfect. It's true tho, the better quality PF/WF100 spec stuff is only a few quid more on screwfix just now and I would have chosen that had it been reduced at the time I bought. Perfectly fine stuff for shorter runs tho, especially at this price!

I've had that 3 times now with proper sky installations, one of the shotgun cables is all blue and furry inside where water has reacted with it. Made such a mess of the back of the sky box and where it was sat.

Yes just plug 1 of the cables in and it will work fine. Aiys essentially just 2 cables running to your dish each cable of tuning a single channel. Unless you have multiple boxes in the house you wont need a splitter

Anyone know if these BNC screw on connectors are easy to fit onto pf100 satellite cable. Wanting to make a scanner aerial for my attic. Also should I opt for the pf100 coax or just go with the cheaper RG6 coac

Should be very easy as long as they're the right size.
Sometimes you'll find "RG6" made of copper which is weird because it's not really to spec. RG6 is "usually" a steel core and aluminium shields. If it's for some kind of hobby radio activities (?) I'd go for quality cable - WF/CT/WC/TX/whatever-100 with a solid copper core, copper braid and copper foil. More copper is more betterer!

of the 4 terminals on the dish, 1 goes to bedroom, 1 in the family room & 2 in the Lounge. It's the Lounge TV that has freesat. for sme stupid reason I told the builders to cut the antenna cable that was coming into that room
Could this be used for cctv cameras, just put BNC plugs on the end?

All you need to do in that case is connect either 1 of the cables into the tv. If it' a Freesat tv would presume there is the relevant screw type connector, if not just get an adapter
