It's also easier for the smaller strands to be damaged and thus compromise the neutral. Rusted galvanized strap in contact with the aluminum strands. Is there any support for the service drop? Coax or phone drop to conductor clearance?

Sparky66, I know there use to be an outer sheath. I have seen this a bunch around here. Had a job not to long ago where the vinyl guys pulled down the service entrance and then wanted me to strap it back. I told the GC that I wouldn't touch it unless we restacked in RMC. Funny how people are more worried about vinyl siding than safe electricity.
