Chris,
RG6 is a 75 ohm cable, RG62 is 93 ohms. Supposedly, RG6 is the new standard for home installations (cable TV, satellite, etc.), replacing RG59 (also 75 ohms).

I don't know anything about where RG62 is used. Professional installations, maybe?

RG62, or RG5quad is overkill for most all installations.
If standard RG6 is swept tested for proper frequencies it is sufficient for satellite, and surely cable.

Yup - it was the cable standard for ARC-NET the slow pre-runner to thin-net ethernet. and it was nasty to work with - i'll take Cat 5 anyday
