How about measuring RG6 cable? With about a 60ft cable run with combiners, I measured across both ends.

The inner rod measures about 3ohms, which is good.

However the outer conductor (though I measured from the inside) of both ends show up as either 1K ohm or essentially not connected.

I know this needs to be connected (short) when using powered amp, but w/o a pre-amp, because the outer conductor is open, does this mean I'll lose much more signal?
