Description of RG6 & RG6U:
Likely the most familiar RG grade coaxial cable is RG6 or RG6/U (U stands for Utility). It is the ideal choice for home and commercial applications for carrying audio/video transmission such as TV or CCTV. RG6 cables are versatile and very flexible and the thinner construction is also more cost effective than many other alternatives. RG6 is good for most applications although for more rigorous, high-end frequency or long distance connections there may be a loss of signal quality. RG11 cables are better for long runs and higher frequencies but are more rigid (difficult to use around bends) and ultimately more expensive. RG6 cables have characteristic 18 AWG conductor and 75 Ohm impedance but come in various construction designs.
