I thought that all service cable coming in from above had to have a mast and weather head. Could someone help me with this ?
I have installed many with a cable and a goose neck.

Anchor and service head suffices for nearly all installations in these parts. No goosenecks seen. Few service masts.
It really depends on the height. On a 2 story you can get the drop up off the ground far enough with a simple anchor on the facia.
