Anyone have a rooftop-mounted antenna(s) right now? I’m thinking this summer of purchasing a 5’ antenna tripod like this one:
and then putting on a combination of piping to form a T shape:
Much like this but with only two antennae, one 1090 and one 978. Put this ontop of my roof peak and that’ll get it roughly 10’ above the roofing deck and about as high as I can get it without someone questioning what the heck am I doing and/or thinking I’ve gone mad.
Any good advice about this? I’ll have to ensure it’s well-grounded and I have gas lightning arrestors in place and possibly other things. The antennas will both be the FlightAware pre-made 26" ones as they’re already weather-proven. I’m just thinking that it’d be the best scenario to get the most signal possible.
