Running coxal cable into gabel.


Hello I'm setting up my antenna this week d and I'm trying to run my cable into my attic with our having to drill to many hole in roof. I was thinking of installing antenna on the edge of the roof other side of electric mast. And run the coxal cable into the gable window though the attic and down the wall into box. The drip line would be right at the gable window. Is that a good entery point.
Pic is attached to show location of install.

Thank you through the vent it is would like to do the easiest job with out drilling ant more holes in siding. I can put the drip loop right before it enters the vent correct?

Drip loop is fine. You can even paint the cable if you want to disguise it.
