I realise that this subject is pretty dry and should be known by me, but:
What is the accepted bend radius for RG-6 and RG-11 cables?.
I'm personally sick and tired of seeing Coax runs with kinks where they are bent beyond thier design radii.
Or where some Electrician has squashed the thing with his No. 12 boot when working in a new roof.
Anyone care to comment?.

You could look at the manufacturers specs but off hand I would say 10 times the diameter of the cable would be safe.
