The right coaxial cables and connectors. Standard cabling and connectors provide adequate shielding and acceptable signal loss; however, those who have a more sensitive receiver might need to invest in high end equipment.

Exposure to weather elements can also impact the signal quality, so consider either protecting the cable or investing in one of higher quality.
