I live 60/70 miles from broadcast antennas. I plan on putting up a 60ft tower with antenna. Also fixing to get new Samsung MU8500 4K UHD TV. I would like to know what is best cable to use to bring signal in . Cat 7 or RG 6 or what ever you think
 
You will need to ground the tower correctly to avoid problems. A surge protector that will connect in between the antenna cable and TV would be a good idea too.
As to the wire you would want at least RG6. RG11 will have less loss but is very stiff. You want an amplifier at the antenna to compensate to the loss in the cable and maybe to increase signal strength.
Check out Channel Master or Winegard for information. They have been doing this stuff forever.
