RG-6 coax - straight run or splice?
Bought a 50' coil of RG-6 coax from Walmart to run to the new dish location, but fell about 20 feet short. It was a pain to get it to where it is now - down inside the wall into basement, along stringers, up the chimney cavity into the attic ... was planning on going out the gable vent to the dish on the peak. It's strung almost to the gable - about halfway across the attic.
So, will I lose any image quality if I buy one of those coax splices and another 30 feet of cable? Or should I get a 75' or 100' coil and re-run it?
If there's not noticeable difference, I'd just as soon splice ....
