You can use several different cable types for DS3s.  Around here, the most
common cable types are 734 and 735.  734 is the "fat" cable, normally used
for longer runs and 735 is the "skinny" stuff, often used for shorter
runs.  Note that the 735 stuff in particular does not use standard BNC
connectors / strippers / crimpers because BNC connectors look for a
heavier-gauge cable.
