I am trying to splice some RG6 Dual Shield and RG6 Quad Shield coaxial
I have some questions:
A). For stripping RG6 Quad Shield, one web site says to remove the
outer two layers of aluminum foil and braid, then fold back the inner
layers of foil and braid.
Another web site says to cut off the outer 3 layers of foil and braid,
leaving just the inner aluminum foil.
Would either of these work? Does folding back the aluminum foil and
braid make much of a difference?
B) Would there be much signal degradation if I connected a stretch of
RG6 Dual Shield to RG6 Quad Shield?
If they're both rated 75 ohms, there wouldn't be any wave reflections,
C) For coaxial cable, are there any safety hazards I should be aware
If I short the inner conductor to the outer layers of shielding, how
many amps would flow? Enough to damage appliances like a cable modem or
