roof vent

Hi All,

An immediate disclaimer -- I know absolutely nothing about roofs. I have a roof vent (please see an attached picture). Is it possible to take the cap off the vent? I am trying to route an antenna cable through it.

Thanks.

No, do not take the cap off. If you go inside the attic first, snake a pull wire through the vent first. Like a coat hanger. It's easiest to do it that way. Then go outside, tie your coax to the pull wire, and go back in the attic and pull it back in.

Thanks! I just tried that, and I think I got the coat hanger wire through it. It's too dark to climb the roof, will check the other side tomorrow.
