This is sort of a c-bandish question. But more of an fta sore I put it here.
When I installed cable for my cband dish i noticed its rg-59u. I know ku is too high (is it?) but should 59-u be okay for cband analog and digital.

I changed the title...in the future please use a title more appropriate to the issue at hand. Vague titles like help nd the such are my biggest pet peeve here...ok thanks

now to the task at hand. Depending on how much its rated up to you might be OK. If its rated to 1800 mhz you'll be fine. Unless you get into stacked LNB's (most are not) the RG59 would be fine for shorter runs...but you might want to upgrade that to RG6 in the near future :)
Check the cable for the rating...it should say on it
