RE: antenna cable VE1BLL (Military) 17 Sep 16 15:11 75-ohm. RG-59 or RG-6. I've not heard of the others you listed. RG-6 is thicker and lower loss than RG-59. RG-6 is usually the default choice. Think ahead about the connectors. F-type in North America, and may vary in other areas. You might need a crimp tool, which can be very cheap these days.

RE: antenna cable VE1BLL (Military) 18 Sep 16 11:11 The F-connector is very common in places (North America), but the 'IEC' connector is used in Europe and Australia. So it's a geographical and historical variation of TV antenna connectors. See this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TV_aerial_plug I've run into these Belling-Lee connectors because of Software Defined Radio (SDR) USB gadgets. The gadgets were designed for digital TV reception in Europe, but are pressed into SDR service. So we must order various IEC-to-F adapters to make things fit.
