Yea, I saw this coming. As soon as anyone mentions Caps...
Im still just curios what kind of coaxial compressors he used. Guess Im just a nerd. XD
Heh. The cable is mini RG59 - you can find it pre-assembled with the ends in a number of places. We, being a cable company, make our own, of course.
It isn't supposed to be used for high bandwidth, high frequency digital signals as it is not well shielded (only single - RG6 comes in double or quad shield), but that particular cable is 10 feet or so to our in-lab tap, so it works well enough. Plus, as you noticed, it's a lot more flexible and easier to run where we need it in a cramped lab.
Official line: Use RG6. Everywhere.
