TFC-T10 is a type of coaxial cable laid by telecommunications companies to carry content to a home or business. Although the cabling is thicker than traditional RG-6 cable, TF can still be used indoors. It just has a little less pliability than what most people used to in coaxial products. You can mate the two types of cable by connecting them for use indoors. The process is simple.

Things you need

  • Male to male F connector

  1. 1

    Locate the TFT-C10 cable entering the structure, usually at the lowest level of the building. Attic antenna drops are normally found hanging straight down, while incoming satellite or cable feeds can be seen protruding in from the side of the structure.

  2. 2

    Screw in a male to male F connector to the TFC-T10 cable as far as it will go.

  3. 3

    Connect the RG-6 cabling to the other end of the male to male F connector. Route the RG-6 cable as needed to its destination.

Tips and warnings

  • Splitters and other coaxial cable accessories fit TFC-T10 cabling as easily as RG-6 and RG-59.
  • Do not use a splitter instead of a F adaptor, unless there is a reason to do so. Splitters offer at least a 3.5dB drop in signal strength per output leg.
