    Default Some advice re my Sky dish please

    Hi
    Merry Xmas to you all
    I now my own modest home and when I bought it it had a sky disk on the roof.
    I have never used Sky, and am not into sport and don't watch many movies.

    There is an unsightly black cable running down the side of my house.
    I'd like to remove it, but my g/f says leave it there in case I sell the house.
    I have no plans to sell the house

    What do you think
    So what colour is your Adkaf?

    Our place had 3 cables like that (various Dishes / Antennas) Two of them, I removed the Antennas, and simply un-clipped the cable from the side of the house and pulled it back under the house, so its there should it ever be required in the future. (doubt it will be though)

    The 3rd - Cant be bothered removing the old Sky Dish from the chimney so its staying until I get around to removing that

    I just painted it the same colour as the house, it's still there but you hardly notice it.
    Is that a practical solution in your situation?

    No I've got a brick veneer house with an ugly back cable.
    So its either removal or leave it there.

    Snip it off close to the LNB and where it goes into the house. You can easily put another cable back into LNB should you want. You can use non crimp or solder F type plugs available Jaycar.

    Plant a grape vine or passion-fruit at the bottom of the cable and let it grow up it
    I worked for everything I have. Most successful people have done the same thing.
