I'll bite. What kind of service drop are we looking at? The lighter cable looks like it changes into an Pressurized RF cable. Is it for some sort of Radio Antenna?

I believe this is the drop from the cable TV provider.

If a structure has vinyl siding,a demolition contractor can cure it.

There are a number of things that go with vinyl siding,A Yugo in the driveway, Haier appliances, oh and Zinsco and or FPE gear...

As old as this thread is ....

Has NO ONE a good pic of a proper CATV drop to post in contrast to this one?

Here are some issues - and I'd like to see how the trade addresses them:

1) Shouldn't the coax be supported by a steel wire as it runs from the pole to the house?

2) What sort of attachemnt is used at the house?

3) Where's the drip loop?

4) How are the wires to be attached to the eaves? Wire staples?

5) How is the splitter to be protected from weather? And,

6) Where and how do you ground? Let's see the hardware. You might even suggest some suppliers (apart from the places most frequently visited by electricians).
