    Default Antenna installation

    Good point.

    What really made the decision was the drop in signal. I will however research what cable they used and do the math.

    IF by tap into the cable you mean disconnecting the cable service and substituting your own antenna, you could add a broadband amp to the line if signal levels are too low.

    If you mean attach while cable system is still in service there are two problems.

    1 - It is illegal because your antenna will radiate the cable signal. FCC really frowns on this and cable systems are required to periodically search to leaks. This would be a LEAK.

    2- The cable system will already be using those channel allocations and you will get a mess.

    And how would you secure to the pole? There is nothing to grab onto, plus you get the pleasure of having to place your arm over the Electrical drop to do anything.
