Hey, I was just wondering but would you say there is anything wrong with using either latex or vinyl gloves when handing just coaxial? I think latex gives better protection than vinyl when dealing with electrical shocks but I was wondering if any of these are safe or if any of these are not when just handling coaxial lines.
I dealt with the coaxial cables today like I said, and I was wearing disposable vinyl gloves. Originally the reason was to protect my hands and nails against scratches and bumps...and had no idea I may be at risk of getting any kind of shocks.
But, I did some research and apparently latex and/or vinyl gloves may give some kind of protection against electricity, as stated here: http://www.tech-forums.net/pc/f78/do...ricity-148851/
But that is a forum topic so I'm not sure if it's so reliable.
So...who would say vinyl gloves are not safe against shocks? That is when it comes to dealing with coaxial cables.
Ok here is the deal. My TV was powered on, and hooked up to only my DISH receiver via coax.
My DISH receiver was also powered on, and I was connecting it to the coax outlet from my wall, which may or may not have been getting signals from my DISH satellite. I didn't wait any longer to see after I saw the slight sparks coming from my coaxial outlet and after hearing the repetitive noise from my DISH receiver box.
