Cut some pressure treated 2x4's into 6 inch lengths. Strap the coax
bundle to each one using nylon cable ties looped through pipe clamps
nailed or screwed (galvanized) to the 2x4x6's. This will keep your cable
bundle off the roof and will restore the natural flow of your roof. The
wood does not have to be fastened to the roof since the weight of the
cables will hold them in place.
