    Thumbs up

    wht would you want stp ?
    utp is even as good and dont be afraid that it has no shielding. the pairs of an utp cable of cat 5 or 6 are twisted in a special wait to remove noise and interferance.
    utp will do the job just as fine.

    Actually .. although UTP _is_ twisted to _REDUCE_ the noise floor .. it is nowhere near as good as STP.

    The twisted pairing is only good when the pairs are connected properly!

    Sehielding will reduce (never really fully eliminate) transient waves (usaually enough to transmit low voltage data in a noisy environment)

    STP can be bought from any local network supply shop. Look in your yellow pages for networking wholesalers ..

    try partsexpress and search for cat5. Been pondering buying one of their 1000ft spools myself just to have if needed.
