This shows the exit of the coax from the side of the downspout. I used a piece of scrap polyethylene material to cover the hole in the downspout. A rubber grommet was placed in the center of the plastic plate to keep the coax away from sharp aluminum edges. An F-connector was crimped on after pulling the cable through the grommet. Also note the drip loop to prevent water from entering the connections.

Shown too is the Radio Shack grounding block and the # 6 copper round wire that runs to the electrical service grounding rod. The co-ax cable enters the house through an existing air conditioner plumbing hole.

Total cost of this installation was around $200. The Fanfare FM-2G antenna itself costs $99 plus shipping when I purchased it back in the early 2000s.
