I suppose I could have gone around and rewired the entire house too...
Eh upgrade 3 months old.

Dammit, Ahmed, Where did you say that satellite feed is?
That is what happens when no one take out their disconnects. Over decades, the dead wires just pile up.
Sad to say, while not as bad as the above, I seen many utility boxes in the backyards of many poor neighborhood overstuffed with mostly useless wires.
Why The Interwebs Work So Well
Seen this at a friends house the other day. They even left the spool behind.
That is why friends don't let friends get Dish..... :rotfl:
That spool isn't cheap is it? Hello Craigslist! Lol
don't know what you consider "cheap" but a spool of cable is about $60.00
Oh. I thought it would be more. Learn something new everyday.
Hmm how did I get brought up in this thread? Lol I'm no installer but have seen some seriously messed up installs...Mostly by Dish...No shocker there.

Have some more on my other phone.. really wish I've taken pictures of some of the horror jobs I've seen. First one was a commercial service call, when I went up there the dish was just lying there, ripped out with some shingles.. second, mana poles placed wrong, no bishop tape or silicone.. leak city
I laughed pretty hard when I saw the second one...
More. Props to the first guy for getting it to work that close to the fence though. No way I would've put it there.
Coworker sent this to me yesterday... kept failing the 99/103 for some reason! :lol:
Some people should really not be allowed to install .... whoever did this should be thrown in jail because I'm quite sure running lines like that in the air is illegal
Everything about that installation looks wrong .... splitters, multiple multiswitches, cables in the air .... What a mess!
Oh my. :eek2: I don't even want to know where the wires go after the fence post. :nono2:
Even my tailgating dish setup is neater than that!
While the whole thing is a bunch of garbage, I don't think an aerial line is against any law as Cable companies do it all the time.
Now how it's done isn't like anything I see there.
Looks like there are the remnants of three systems:
1) the old legacy WB68s,
2) upgrade to SWiM-16
Wonder what the recycle value is for the dead cables & hardware. !rolling
The aerial line may be an offense against the senses, but it is low voltage so it doesn't constitute any sort of safety hazard. The cable, phone and electric company are allowed to run overhead lines. They don't run it like that, of course - the electrical line is governed by a number of codes, and the cable/phone company always run under the electrical line to the same location, at least that's how it always is around here.
Do we know this was a Directv install, or could it have been a do-it-yourself or done by a fly by night satellite installer in the area?
