Tandem WVB's

What is the distance I can go from a a swm splitter or another WVB with coax RG6 and is the WVB hardened for the outdoors.  I'm trying to connect to my man cave which is about 100ft away.

DTV says the max distance is 150' for RG6.  No the WVB is for indoor use only.

Good Morning @leo,

Welcome to the Community Forums!  I was able to look up the information you requested on another post. 

The distance a WVB goes is 80 ft.  In order to do what you want to do, you will probably need to get another WVB.

I hope this helps.  Have a great day!
