As I mentioned in my last post, our family is proudly too cheap to pay for cable or satellite television. But the same can’t be said for my house’s previous owners. All along the side of the house is strung a cable TV wire that has been disconnected from the supply. We have never used this cable, and now that I have installed new coaxial wire and a splitter in the basement, this cable is obsolete.
With a wire cutter and an adjustable pliers I worked my way along the wire run pulling cable staples from the mortar and rolling up the sagging cable. This small little project only took about a half an hour, but it removed an annoying eyesore from the outside of the house and completed the transition to the new coaxial network and attic antenna inside.
