Default Hello

I am new to this posting. I am adding an off air antenna at my home. I am running 75 ft of coaxial cable indoors from the antenna to a tivo romio box. Should I use Rg6 or Rg11 cable

I have read a little information on the differences between the 2. Will I lose any signal strength with that long a run of cable?
Thanks

Of course there will be a bit more signal loss with RG6 vs RG11, but at 75 feet it will be minimal. Now if you were talking several hundred feet then RG11 may be indicated. Worse case is you add a preamp at the antenna, but doubt it will be necessary due to the cable used.
