Copper/copper double shielded satellite coaxial cable - brown Copper/copper double shielded satellite cable - black Copper/copper double shielded aerial cable - white

Quality male to male “fly leads” (can be converted to Male to Female with a “Back to Back” Co-Ax connector).


Forget these leads` alleged 100Hz capability, what counts is the 6mm double shielded (RG6 type) cable and they`re robust enough for us to use them around the workshop. Note the crimped on plug (no weak solder joint here), the RF chokes and the strain relief moulding. White in colour and available in 2m and 4m lengths.


Bargain, I`ll have a dozen.......

Individually screened SCART cable, 1m, 3m, 5m and 10m.

Individually screened SCART cable

Our suppliers tell us that this grade of SCART cable is suitable for up to 15m. We thought we`d be on the safe side, so we only sell them up to 10m !

Obviously (as with any type of cable) the shorter any cable is, the lower the loss.

Thus we sell 1m, 3m, 5m and 10m lengths.

Brass CoAx plug

Brass Co-Ax plug. We prefer them to alloy ones because the latter can be susceptible to corrosion and become difficult to undo over time, particularly in a damp atmosphere. The shape of the “claw” insert is critical to whether it grips the cable well, or just pulls off. Incidentally it is bad practice to re-use a Co-Ax plug because this claw becomes deformed (particularly if the plug was incorrectly attached) and it never seems to grip as well after that.

The picture shows two types of F connector.  The one on the right is the easier to use type, so needless to say, that`s the one we stock. Our Fs have in internal diameter of about 6.5mm, and fit our cable which has an external diameter of about 6.7mm.


Note, F connectors (if required) are included with any amp or splitter supplied by us.

Co Axial “Back to Backs”

Female to female coupler (also known as barrel connectors) are used to convert a male plug to a female. We do not recommend Female Co Ax sockets (except right angle types) because the design of them is not conducive to reliability. Very few trade aerial suppliers sell them either, and that`s got to tell you something. (connector shown both ways in the picture)

Cable joining kit

Cable Jointing Kit


This consists of :

2 x F Connectors *

1 x F “Back to Back”

1 ft self amalgamating tape


* Note, we now supply superior quality F Connectors with this kit.


For this product the P&P is cheaper if you phone the

order through !

M8 wall screws (50 and 75mm) and M10 nylon plugs (50mm & 80mm)


Requires a 10mm hole on the masonry. These wall plugs are the better “collared” type

See article on Wall Anchors.   

Note, four anchors are required for a single wall bracket and five for a pair of T & Ks.

Coaxial cable clips, white, brown and black

Cable Clips in White, Brown or Black.





These 7mm clips “grip” the cable well so you don`t have to hold them whilst you hammer in the nail. Thus saving your fingers from the possibility of making acquaintance with the hammer......


The nail is hardened and zinc plated.

Brown blowout cover White hole cover

Hole Covers / Blow Out Covers in Brown or White.

Approximate size 110mm x 110mm, takes at least 5 x 6.5mm cables.

We can make up cables for you using any combination of the following :

Black cable

Brown cable

White cable

Co-Ax plug ( = male)

Co-Ax “Back to Backs” (converts male to a  female)

Right Angle Co-Ax plug ( = male)

Right Angle Co-Ax socket ( = female)

F connectors ( = male)

F connector “Back to Backs” (converts male to a  female)


To avoid confusion we recommend that you phone the order through, and futhermore we may be able to send it Royal Mail which is cheaper on the P & P.


Alternatively, if it`s straight forward, you can just order all the components Online, then add the £2 per end fee to attach the plugs. It may be worth using the Contact Us form to confirm exactly what is required if there is any room for confusion !

We don`t recommend “budget” type wall plates. If you have to use a wall plate it should be screened (as in those above) and non isolated. Also try to ensure the cable is not kinked, route it like the one above left, and not like the one above right......

See wiring up surface plates : Screened types / Diplexed types / Budget unscreened types


ATV only sell screened non isolated surface plates.


Note that ATV cannot guarantee the white/cream shade of the plates.

One way female Co Ax (TV/FM/DAB) socket surface plate [white], non-isolated so as to pass 12V to a Mast Head amp (if required). As can be seen from the picture (above right) it is screened.                   

See article on Surface Plates.       For this product the P&P is cheaper if you phone the order through !

TV + FM/DAB diplexed surface outlet plate [white]. Loss approx 1dB.

The unit is isolated on the FM leg only, i.e. it will pass 12V to a M / H amp but on the TV leg only.  As can be seen from the pictures (above right) it is screened. The TV outlet is a male (a Back to Back may be used if req) and the FM/DAB outlet is a female.  See the articles on Surface Plates and Diplexers.  Note this is a diplexed surface plate (one in to two out).

For this product the P&P is cheaper if you phone the order through !

TV + FM/DAB + Satellite triplexed surface outlet plate [white]. Loss approx 1dB

The unit is isolated on the TV and FM/DAB legs (i.e. It will not pass 12V to a Mast Head amp on the TV or FM leg) but it will obviously pass the LNB voltage on the satellite leg.  As can be seen from the picture (above right) it is screened. The TV outlet is a male (a Back to Back may be used if req) and the FM/DAB outlet is a female.           See article on Surface Plates and Diplexers.

Note this is a triplexed surface plate (one in to three out) and the right hand input is not used.

Co Ax socket plus F connector socket (both female) surface plate [off white].

This is a two in two out plate, i.e. it is NOT diplexed (click here for a diplexed surface plate). Non-isolated so as to pass the voltage back to power the LNB, and a Mast Head amp if required. As can be seen from the pictures the plate is fully screened. In addition each terminal is screened separately which can be particularly important in minimising interference for combined satellite / terrestrial TV outlet plates.

Self amalgamating tape and insulation tape

Self Amalgamating" Tape (which sticks to itself when the backing is removed) for sealing outside joints or the F connector on an LNB, see use of self amalgamating tape.

NOTE : We sell the wider 25mm amalgamating tape, not the thinner 19mm stuff......


We also stock Insulation Tape, decent stuff not crap, for, well, just about anything. It`s nice and sticky and stretchy, so it`s perfect for taping the cable to the side of the pole, amongst 1001 other things. One thing it is not  for is sealing outside joints. Not unless you`re name is Bertie (as in Bodger).

The insulation tape is 0.12mm thick, 19mm wide, and flame retardant. BS60454.

Connector shown

both ways

for clarity.

The cable is just as important as the aerial (and any amp or splitter, if fitted) in providing a decent signal on your set. The cable should be changed as a matter of course if any work is undertaken on the aerial, unless you are sure it is sound and of good quality.


We only sell the best WF100 / CT100 cable

“Double Screened” (copper/copper) & CAI approved.


It is suitable for FM, DAB, TV and Satellite (6.6mm thick and 75 Ohm impedance).


See cable loss graph


The only choice you have to make is which colour you want, Black, Brown or White ?


A typical cable run (from the roof) is about 15m. Bear in mind that it is preferable to order a bit too much, than a piece that`s a bit too short..... Any extra cable can be made into fly leads, which, I guarantee, will be better quality than those you already have.

And don`t forget cable clips, you`ll kick yourself if you do !
