One thing I learned from my recent antenna project using RG6 and F 
connectors was to buy quality environmentally sealed F connectors 
(Snap-N-Seal) and the proper RG6 cutting/stripping and Snap-N-Seal 
connector installation tool.

Makes quick weather tight RG6 F connectors.  The junk 
push-on/screw-on/solder F connectors are nothing but trouble.
