I meant RG-59. Both RG-59 and RG-6 are identical in terms of the internal; conductor, both are 50 ohm cable, actually, and both look identical on the exterior even in terms of dimensions.
In my neck of the woods RG-59 was the de facto video coax until about 15 years or so ago. The leakage with the 85% shielding was deemed excessive for higher video quality and especially for usage for computer data. Again the RG-6 has 100% shielding making it a far superior cable for both data and video.
