I will be installing an exterior antenna for local HD broadcast TV that will feed my Dish Network DVR.

I need to run the RG6 cable through and external wall and into the basement and then to my distribution center. The penetration will be into the basement ceiling space which is made of trusses and which are 14" high so there is plenty of room to work. The exterior walls are wood so drilling the hole is not a problem.

About 15 years ago I used a product that was made of plastic pipe that was clear and with an inside diameter that would accommodate a single RG6 cable (without the connector).

Did some searching on the Net with no luck. Not sure just what search terms to use but I did find plenty of structured wire chase info but nothing seemed to fit my needs (without buy 50' of material).

Does anyone know of such a product?
Thanks
Marty
