I got a friend in Montana who wants to lay a video cable across his Ponderosa. I think I heard somewhere that video signal degrades over distance, but if this is true, how does the cable company <spit on ground> lay cable across the city? Are there boosters or something?
And what about cable weight? I have seen spy cameras with skinny cable, how come I gotta use the fat coaxial line commonly found in hardware stores?
Any cable jockeys out there?
