Why does it need to be professionally installed? Its just an antenna. Its not like its a dish that needs to be aimed at at specific point.
I imagine you could just unmount it if a hurricane is coming. Andrew was the first Hurricane that hit this area in my lifetime(33 years) and most people had cable by then. So somebody who's really old
would be better to answer this.
