    RF socket or aerial socket?

    Aerial Specialists

    What is an rf socket and is it the same as an aerial socket? Or are they too different things?

    "Rf is an abbreviation for Radio Frequency.

    Basically the same thing as a TV outlet socket.

    There are different types of socket, if you are replacing one just get one with the same external cable type connection to accept the cable you want to plug in. E.G male F for satellite, female or sometimes but not so often male Coax for TV,

    Hope this helps, Paul, digitalsmart."

    "They are both the same thing in all fairness it's just a socket that has a female adapter for your aerial cable others have adapters for the cable to be screwed into"

    "Aerial socket is for your Tv.
    Rf stands for radio frequency.
    So if you have a radio system you can just plug it in tune your radio and job done."
