Google would be your best friend on this one, find a local supplier (or one as close to you as possible) would be the cheapest, shipping would be a big cost on a 150 meter spool.

RG-11 is hard to handle as it's bigger and stiffer then RG-6, you will need several things, one would be an RG-11 connector crimp tool and coax stripper, the connectors can be found at the same place.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

As another member living nearby has found, there are very few services into the area, and the excise duty payable to the local government for imports can be prohibitively expensive.

From memory the idea of optical LNBs is a local one, so Solly has the option to find something to supply signal to the receiver without resorting to coaxial copper.

Belden is a well known manufacturer of cables and they have a distributor in Israel Arrow
https://www.arrow.com/
Here is an example for RG11 cable
7984B - CATV & Satelite Cable | Belden
Also Alpha Wire represented by Alexander Schneider
https://www.schneider.co.il
Suggest to talk with them maybe next week because they are probably on Passover holiday these days.

But I wouldn't discard buying from overseas you will need a standard drum of 500ft (slightly more than 150m that you need)
Also on ebay 400ft cable with connectors shipment is quite cheap only US $28.45 you probably need to pay only VAT which you would pay anyway if you buy it in Israel.
MADE IN USA RG11 Outdoor Direct Burial Gel Coax Cable Underground 14AWG Coaxial | eBay
The only problem with this cable is that you don't know who is the actual manufacturer.
Look for more options on ebay.
Let me know if you need more help.

And 150 metres is a long way to run a satellite IF signal,(the signal that comes down from the LNB to the satellite receiver) you may have signal problems at the far end.

Analog mentioned the use of fibre, there are some fibre optic satellite LNB's and fibre transmitter and receivers out there, this would solve any signal loss problems.

If you go with the fibre option then I would suggest the use of some PVC electrical conduit to protect it, this will also let you run some AC power out to the dish location as the fibre optic LNB and its transmitter needs local power to run.

A bit more expensive then coax but well worth it, the only drawback is that it only runs one LNB, and you can't use a motorized system.(not without tripling your costs)

Here is some info on this option.

@Channel Hopper
the lnb optical buy it before one year ago of invacom
the c.n resolve was bad
the invacom c120 better c.n of low channel astra 19.2e from mideast

I didn't suggest an optical LNB was going to be ideal, but as Terryl has confirmed, a 150m run is going to be difficult to achieve in copper without additional amplification, moreso four lines, even with large diameter cable.

The longest distance I recall installing was about 130m, and this was using CT223 cable, in the days when there weren't signals above 1750MHz.
