I have never heard of any RG6 cable that takes special "F" connectors.
You can buy some very nice waterproof F connectors for RG6 on eBay.
One important thing is to get a good crimping tool. Our friends at
have a nice one that makes a real professional six-sided crimp.
F connectors for RG59 will not fit RG6.
Also one can buy 1000ft of RG6 for US$50.00 post paid to your door.
