I’ve finally decided to build my own system to start sharing data. I’m very green/unexperienced at this. I would like to mount the system on my roof and run through the Bonus window of my house, being that where my modem is located.
I am planning on buying the packaged FA kit and putting the antenna outside. But I dont know whether to go on top of the roof or use a telescoping pole. One of the main factors is I know it would need to be grounded regardless, but I how would I run it to a grounding rod? Also, would I need to put some sort of insulation under an antenna mount if I mount the pole to the roof?
If I decided to mount in the attic, how would I go about that? I haven’t been able to find any pictures that show how others have done it.
Thank you all and apologies in advance if this is a repeat subject.
