I've read around that CT150 cable is the best cable to use when the signal being received is low. The trouble is that I would like to try this out but a google search doesn't bring much up. Is it known by another name and where can I get this type of cable from?

Try searching for WF165 or CT165, don't think there is such a cable as CT150.

if your cable run is about 30-40m just use some wf125

When it is installed it will probably be 40m, possible a bit more. I'm moving into a flat with a flat roof, so I'm looking at getting a 1.2m or 1.8m so want the best possible cable for fringe satellite reception. I don't want to have to change the cable so I want to use the best from the start. I saw RD100 mention CT150 on this forum and another forum as being good for improving the signal on weak signals.
