Question Advice requested on removal of TV antenna

Hello,

I will never use the TV antenna that came with my new X17Z, and so I have decided to remove it. Has anyone done this? All advice greatly appreciated!

X2...was on the roof yesterday and also thought I should remove the antenna. I can remove it, and maybe cut the cable. But I would rather not have to cut it, in case I sell and re install the antenna.

3,

I agree, whatever I do, I will need to be able to re-install the antenna IF I ever sell my X17Z.

Why bother to remove it and take a chance on a potential leak?

unnecessary weight & drag. I won't remove it if a leak is possible.

Personally I would leave it.
May open yourself up for more chances of a leak as stated.
I don't think the weight and drag is significant.
JMHO,
Doug

In general I agree, but I'm still going to see if it's possible. I may only be able to remove part of it. I'll let you know what I find.
