The cable used in satellite and cable TV installations can be reused once it has been disconnected from those services.

Some TV antenna installations are very easy. A beginner do-it-yourself project. Others can require expert DIYer skill and tools.

A roof top installation calls for an understanding of what may be harmful to the roof and the person working on it. The slip/fall hazard is a risk you would need to be able to assess and take appropriate steps to mitigate. If power lines are present, you need to know that you can identify them, avoid them and plan the installation so that if the antenna or mast fell, there would be no chance of contact with power. We can help you choose the antenna and related hardware, then talk you though the install. If you want to try this your self, feel free to give us the details... ask all the questions, none are dumb, unless you don't ask . You can post photos if you like.

The tools and supplies are commonly available to the DIYer. But if you decide you only want to select and purchase the hardware, then we'll be happy to help with that.

If you're inclined to hire the work, companies specializing in 'structured wiring', 'home theater installation' and independent 'satellite system installation' would be worth inquiring of.

Ultimately, you're a far better judge of your skills than we are.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
