    I’m just looking to buy some new rg59 cable and can anybody recommend a good quality one please? Then I will fit the connectors and attach properly Amy advice would be great thank you

    I’m in London I only need say 30meters and they all come in 100m rolls also I think the previous cctv installer has used r6 into r59 because one wire looks thicker then the other? Thanks

    screwfix sell it, doesn't say the specification and they do smaller rolls, you can inspect it or ask them. otherwise it getting a roll online at 100M probably even some on amazon.
