Rogues Gallery

Modern houses without chimneys often have aerials fitted on the gables. Unfortunately this can cause a guano problem, especially if the mast is above a patio or doorway. Guano? Well, it’s white except when there are blackberry bushes nearby. . .

This picture shows an attempt to ensure that the guano’s trajectory ends on the roof rather than the patio. This isn’t really out-and-out roguery, but I’ve included it here because the twisting force on the mast and wall bracket must be excessive in high winds. I wonder if the three small aerials were added afterwards, using a stepladder balanced on the roof . . .

It is quite easy to fix an aerial mast though the roof, using a roof sealing kit that costs all of £30. This is a much better solution. One aerial and a distribution amplifier would also have been an improvement.
