going to be installing a diy FM aerial system into the house that will feed a Car stereo headunit in the garage and my onkyo receiver. is RG6 ok to use for the cable?
 I need to et the aerial out away from the garage as it will have 3 fluoro fittings in there which will probably cause RF interference.

RG6 will work fine. FM broadcast radio is similar frequencies to the old VHF TV frequencies. Supposedly the only situation where RG59 is better than RG6 is for sending composite video over long distances.

Yep. RG6 will work perfectly fine and is more readily available. RG59 is cheaper (usually), but will work equally - for this purpose - as well as having the added benefit of being more flexible. But if you have some left over RG6 from something else, just use that.
