Yesterday's cable run

Postby BillESC » Fri Oct 22, 2010 3:11 pm

We're just finishing up an a large multi room home entertainment system job. One of the tasks yesterday was to install a new XM antenna on the roof and cable it to the tuner/receiver in the living room.

From the chimney, the cable ran across about 15' of roof and into a vent in the attic. There the cable went throught the attic floor into a broom closet on the first floor of the house. Then through the floor of the broom closet into the dropped ceiling of a basement bathroom. The cable then traveled across the ceiling of the basement and into the garage where it went back up throught the ceiling into a kitchen cabinet. From there is was out of the back of the cabinet along the floor to the tuner/receiver.

It took about 260' of wire to connect the antenna to the receiver which were physically only about 25' apart.
Thanks,

Wireless doesn't provide complete frequency response and can be sketchy at times. Hard wired is always best and my labor rate is only $ 180.00 per hour.
