Wall Of Shame – Poor cabling

Our Wall of Shame is just a small selection of the jobs I am called out to. These types of “installers” who originally did these jobs are the ones that give installers a bad name. The Poor Installations that I have been called out to solve have included dishes being bent to make them fit, nuts and bolts missing from satellite dish installations, and poorly installed “big” satellite dishes.

Poor cabling can mean many things. Common examples are cable connections not being waterproofed, not protected from the rain, cabling not secured or tacked nicely, cable connections being done without the correct connectors, and the protective rubber gaiters and pull down plastic caps not being used to protect the cable connections with the LNBs!

This section focuses on example of poor cabling and poor LNB connections.
