This was one I saw while driving by. It drove me nuts. I finally talked to the AHJ and it was replaced.

Wow, I thought this house's (town's) service was ugly. Nice to hear it was replaced.

On another note, can we please get some pictures of nice, half-ways decent SE installs?

Not possable for a decent SE install, they look like hell any way one stacks it.

I've actually seen a few that look decent in my Northeast eyes, but didn't have the camera with me. Heck, four of the seven I can remember right now have either burned down or been torn down to make way for a second story. (And the lowest-bidder replacements always look like crap.)

There's about as many decent SE installs around here as there is masts, to put things in perspective. Hmm, I gotta get a pic of a Levittowner's original 4X4 mast w/ SE cable, at least they looked good.
