Wonder why don't see much RG11 around now days other than harder to work with!Wow. Are you sure you got that build date right? Ah... I see you are probably right since the RJ11 became widespread in the '70s.
Some of my thoughts about RG cable. RG-11 would be a gross overkill for home use. The recommended RG-6 from Monoprice is copper clad steel, not a solid copper center, if that matters or not to you. It's also quad shield, which is more difficult to work with and not needed for most home use.
Also as I don't recommend RG-59, it will work just as well as RG-6 for home use. It will be the Dish installer that will tell you that you need RG-6 rated at 3 gig.
Just my 2 cents guys.
Maybe re-read. He is saying quad shield is not needed in most cases.So, RG11 is overkill, RG6 is not needed, and RG59 you don't recommend. What do you recommend?

So, all RG6 is not quad shield? I'm not being argumentative, I'm just not knowledgeable about cable. I'm just curious what he recommends. He says he doesn't recommend RG59, but that it works just as well as RG6.
