Patching a CableTV/Internet Ground Line
I was working at a clients house and managed to cut the thick ground line from their cable provide. They had it no more than 6 inches under the surface…. It will be 10+ days before a technician from the company can come out and take care of this and the client wants to know if I can do a temporary patch of some sort. Has anyone worked with these? This isn’t normal Coax, it’s a very thick cable with a large copper wire in the middle, insulation foam, a metal exterior coating and then rubber on top of that.
Could I just run a copper patch from the one side to the other or does the metal coating transfer something as well? Any help would be much appreciated!
