    You should be able to walk in and out of screwfix with a reel if you are in a rush but you can probably find cheaper elsewhere.

    WF100 is fine....Ive used it loads as it has the foam insulation not the airspaced plastic...therefore it prevents water ingression.

    Its also more resistant to kinkage.

    this is really only for Freeview and indoors, would RG6 cable be fine?

    RG6 is fine, but WF100 is better, lik Nibb says, the di-electric is foam and also the shielding is solid rather than the braided stuff so less prone to interference.

    Any 75ohm cable is fine, IME WF100 is perfect for all installs, should last you 10 years no probs.
