I live in Vermont, about 30ish miles from the boarder, which is not exactly prime-time traffic for flights, unlike say JFK. Looking to setup the USB pro stick (my app for the official hardware denied). In any event i think with a roof-mounted option, I will be abe to see BTV, PLB, KFSO traffic. Maybe bit father, but we shall see.
For my setup, i am looking to do a PiAware + NTP/GPSD setup, to also get NTP for my network. So I am looking at a chimney mount option with maybe a 3-foot pole. My plan would be to run the wires down the chimney and inside the basement. FYI the chimney is abandoned, was used for oil furnace but we went with propane which is a whole different setup.
I estimate maybe 25Feet of cable should do the trick. What kind of signal loss should I expect from this? I have debated simply putting the Pi in a weatherproof enclosure with a poe hat, but vermont gets both hot and cot here. Not looking for a new pi every year kind of thing.
