I will be erecting a 100 ft antenna mast for a project.
This mast will be privately owned and at this time I will have only 2 antennas and was thinking of moving my piware setup out of my attic and onto the mast.
Has anyone here deployed a piware to an antenna mast?
If so would you kindly share any hurdles or challenges you faced?
There is no need to deploy the whole thing on the mast. Just put there a preamp with 1090MHz filter and run a coax to house (where network and 120V is available). You can build a small shed (or a big box) at base of the tower too.
I am running 150 ft of RG6 coax to my AirspyMini/Pi3. Power over coax.
PS: Personally I am not using the T available in the dongle, voltage it is too low to allow for voltage drop at the preamp side. I have a variable voltage (steps) source in my house, set to send 9 V with an injector over coax and a 5V stabilizer up at the antenna before feeding the preamp.
