Thanks Jim

If we have trouble I’ll get him CAT6. At least the holes in the ceiling will be there by then.

You can see us at BH23 8DU. You can just about see my mast for the 80m inverted V on the chimney.

I'd be using Cat 6.

CAT5 is unscreened and I had RFI problems when using it and poor network performance when using it to carry HD quality. Switched to CAT6 which is screemed. QRM gone and bombproof performance.

If he is using CAT5, thats probably asking for trouble.
