I have cables run from every room to a central splitter, and I need to identify which cable goes to which room in a new house without climbing through the attic. Can this be used to to do that?
Asked by: Matthew
yes! you can test up to 4 different locations as you can see... it will let you know of any shorts (interference) in the coax.

Coax Explorer 2 with Remote Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 56.

Installing a digital antenna in a cable house ready can be a nightmare. Found the termination panel for all of the coaxial cables, but couldn't match the rooms to the cables, until the purchase of this tool. The color coded ends made it super easy. Highly recommend. Seems a bit pricey, but trust me, it's well worth it. Greatly saves time and helps to quickly eliminate unused rooms.

Great tool for mapping out a current coax system when everything is behind walls and the low voltage box is full of unlabeled, black wires. I would recommend picking up some extra female to female connectors. One is included, but you will want at least five total to make jobs go more smoothly.
