How Do You Install A Coaxial Cable?

If you are trying to hook up an electrical device that requires a coaxial cable to move signals back and forth, here are the things you need to know. The word “install” can mean a lot of things. I’m going to assume that you don’t need instruction about drilling holes through a wall or floor, (though we might mention the obvious, don’t drill into electric wires or water lines and make sure you know what’s on the other side) or crawling around in your attic or under your floor to “install” your piece of coax. It can be physically demanding and it’s nice to have someone to help you. The first important step is to determine how you will route the cable from the source point (perhaps a satellite dish) to the terminal point (probably a TV receiver or a computer). Next, figure out how long a piece of coax you are going to need. Measure the distances across rooms and up walls (don’t forget to add the distances through walls, floors, and ceilings) and add several feet for mistakes and drip loop
