Shaft,
You should really use proper satalite cable.
FT100 is readily available and not too expensive.

Complete with 2 F type connectors

The cable Dave pointed out is by far the best option.

However, ordinary 75ohm coaxial cable will work but you may get a lot of interference, so it's not worth using.
