    Take it from an old cable TV feller: That's called messenger coax, among other things. That type of coax is normally used in aerial applications and the small wire is tied off to a pole, then the side of the house. It could be the dish company uses only that type of coax so it reduces their inventory, or the tech was out of whatever they would normally use for underground applications.
