RG-6 for 1300

We want to make a longer dual RG-6, is there any special type that we need for this?

No, though a high-quality quad-shield flavor would be my first choice.

Be advised that if the cables are too long, you may end up with marginal operation: You can drop enough voltage such that the unit comes up, but under an operational load, there is not enough power, and the unit flakes out.

Getting the best quality cable you can is recommended. Make sure it is properly terminated; bad termination can also introduce all sorts of glitchy errors and can possibly roast some vital parts.

Good Luck
