I'm looking for a few ideas. I have a client that needs a cable drop from the house to the garage but it has to go overhead. Anybody have any ideas?

It's for tv and internet in the garage.

You could in theory run the cat5 or cat6 and strap it to the rg6 but it looks cleaner and neater to do it that way.

Just remember use surge protection for the drop. L - com has a few nice ones.

Only other thing to do would be a wireless network pointed to the building .

They make outdoor cable. I don't believe RG6 is rated for wet locations

What is tough in it? Its very easy to take wire overhead with the help of poles. In the whole world, there are many places where people usually do wiring overhead in place of underground wiring.
