It could be done with 250 using RG-6. But make damn sure it's new and swept-tested up to 3K.

250 is really really pushing it, tho. I have done a run of 330 foot using a DP receiver with a Legacy LNB. :shh :shh. With a Legacy setup you're not prone to as much signal loss due to using a lower freq. Once again, not really something that is recommended

It MAY work at 250 feet. It is just that Dish Network recommends it to be 200 feet or less. You will have to try it and see if there are any problems beyond the 200 feet. If you experience issues then you may need to purchase some DPP approved inline amplifiers. Having some high quality cable would also help.

Only thing I can recommend is run two temp lines using a DPTwin....See how it works out....good luck burying THAT cable..
