in my planning to upgrade to 36volt motor i will need a run of motor cable and sat coax so is the combined cable any good ?

how does it work as can you split the cable as the motor will be behind the dish as the sat coax will need to run to the lnb

using the combined cable will save having to drill an extra hole

or should i run two separate cables to the motor and lnb ?

thanks

You will still need to enlarge the hole you already have, so you may as well run a separate cable. :)

well i was planning to use the existing cable for a sky digibox as i'm going to put the dish higher up cause of bloody trees

rolfw how wide is the combined cable is it more than 10mm ?

also could you recommend a place to buy a 50m reel of wf100 and 4 core cable ?

Not sure of the dimensions wod, probably 12mm or so, you could try Grax.co.uk, they are wholesalers, but will be able to put you onto a supplier.

The shotgun cable we use for sky installs fits through a 10mm hole.
