This is a favourite trick of some of the dish installers employed by a certain large company. Normal coaxial cable is not designed to be immersed in water. The outer sheath is not perfectly waterproof, and although rain has little or no effect immersion for any length of time will affect the performance of the cable. If the fall pipe has been blocked it can be quite amusing to hoist up one end of the cable and throw a large amount of moss and general gunge onto the ground below. “No extra charge for cleaning your gutter missus!”

Thanks to Chris Dwyer for this picture.
