Not "Bum," simply different from what you were expecting. It is probably 
decent RG6, designed for use in MATV systems. Light weight, optimized for 
VHF/UHF, built so that it can be quickly terminated with inexpensive 
connectors. As I said in a post only a week or so ago, RG numbers tell us 
VERY little about coax. 

Now, this coax ought to work quite well for your RX antennas. Most of us use 
something like this, including me.
