I have many CAT V and coaxial cable that meet in my basement. I need to identify which ones lead to specific receptacles. Can this tool be used for that purpose?

It could be used for that purpose, but it's not exactly meant for toning lines.
I would suggest you look for a better tool by a different mfr.
This one is junk. There's a reason the mfr provides no warranty.

No, this tool tests the line to make sure that its good. It does not trace the line for you. Try using the ET64220 or the ET65220, both of these will trace a specific line for you. Remember that when testing coaxial cable, you'll need to disconnect all of the cables from the splitter before testing.

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Failed to work right out of the box. Wiggled battery and got a power light for a little while. Right out of the box it failed. I checked battery and it had a full charge. Changed batteries with fresh ones to confirm. Wiggled the battery and got the red power led to light up for a little while. I got it to work somewhat but had to leave the battery back off and apply some pressure to the batteries. It just doesn't seem to make good contact with the batteries. I'll be returning this and getting another brand for sure. I need something reliable to troubleshoot with. And another thing... To save on money and paper they put a little piece of paper in there and tell you to go on line to read instructions assuming everyone has internet still. They claim they're being eco friendly. The online instructions weren't much bigger than the paper that told you to go on line were. February 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk Fails to read on known good cables. worthless junk. October 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coaxial and UTP/STP Cable Tester This is my second set of these testers. The first lasted almost 2 years until I dropped my tool bag and broke the main tester (battery powered unit). I have tested thousands of cables (Cat5e) as patch panel jumpers, office lines and uplinks between buildings and switches. The units have always been reliable and do not eat batteries like my previous units did. I have had little need to test RG59/RG6, but they have works the handful if times I needed to test continuity. Price is excellent and I highly recommend them. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cable tester - CAT5e and COAX I recently purchased my second set of these (one to leave at my office and one for my tool kit). I have used these testers on HUNDREDS of different CAT5e and Coax cables. I HIGHLY recommend them. They do not eat batteries like my old set. May 5, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Find something else... Easy to use, sturdy shells and works well enough on network patch cables but the primary use for this tool for me.. was for testing RG-6 runs... and it won't do that. No reading on known good cables, no reading from the included calibration pieces. JUNK. Looks like there's a reason there's no mfr warranty provided. January 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by exactly as advertised This tester has been in my tool kit now for years and it has never failed. If other folks don't like it because it ran out of battery power they should try turning the ON/OFF switch to the OFF position. this is a great item. May 16, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Died less than a week after purchase Bought this to replace my old Klein tester that was run over by accident. After using this far less expensive Gardner tester on maybe 15 cables over a few days, the remote end's lights stopped working, rendering it totally useless. I actually disassembled it to see if a connection broke somehow but it's just a NIC port on a small PCB with nothing really to break. I'm just going to return it and get the Klein. March 1, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works as advertised This helped me identify which coal cable in my attack lead to the wall jack in my family room. worked as advertised, decent price, but the build quailty doesn't seem overly impressive. I would say for the average Joe's usage around the house this will get it done. But if you are a pro and this will see very heavy usage, perhaps look elsewhere. For me, it was just what I needed!
