We are so Happy to have This Universal Peak Ridge and Flat Roof Mount for Telescopic Push-up Antenna Masts for masts up to 2-5/8" Diameter (which is every Brand and Model we can think of) Of all the Models we've evaluated to date, this one is the Best. It starts with a 16 gauge shaped, rolled, seamed Tube stock that has a recessed channel for the inside set of retaining set screw nuts. All of the Hardware is Galvanized and is of a Heavy Duty Nature. The Hinges are also 16 gauge and Hardy Stuff. Matter of Fact, this Mount will be Harder than most Masts, you will probably want to procure a 6 inch section of Black Iron Pipe to place on the inside of the bottom section of the antenna Mast to keep it from Collapsing, as the Double Nut Set Screws do not give. The Bottom Main Assembly Bolt also doubles as the 3rd Hinge which facilitates swinging the Mast up or down from Vertical for Erection and Maintenance. As with all Masts, Guy wire support and Grounding are Critical to Antenna Survival.
There is no substitute of height, clear line-of-site and size does matter... The higher the frequency, the higher the loss... Amplifiers do not give you something that you didn't have already...
The first key to any reception is to get above obstructions that exist between you and your target, as radio frequency reception of any kind (satellite, microwave, Radio and TV) are for the most part "Line-of-Sight" dependant. The fact that some receptions occur without line of sight is due to phenomenon not applicable in this discussion. As you increase your target distance, you increase the territory you must account for in maintaining line-of-sight.
What tall building and air traffic exist in this corridor, no one can account for. Aircraft are very good at messing up reception for a number of reasons, even when flying way above the path, again removed for clarity in this discussion. Height, is therefore key in optimizing your ability to capture the best line-of-sight possible to your target.The Roof of any Building of Home provides a Logical Platform of Height in which Line-of-Sight is more likely to occur, or from which, more height can easily be obtained.
