Hello all. I am just about to order a roof mount (tagelvoet) that uses 60 x 40 x 5mm concrete tiles for ballast. The ballast weight is approximately 108kg
My intention is to mount the dish and mount on top of a flat metal shipping container that I use for storage. It is clear in the direction of the satellite. I have a Triax TDS 110 offset fed dish. The standard pole for this roof mount is 70cm long which means that the lower edge of the dish will be around 25 cm above the metal roof and around 1.5m from a wall to the West of the dish.
How much clearance do I need?
I can buy a 120cm pole but then I should probably go to a 60mm diameter pole instead of the supplied 48mm.
I have no idea what is needed, I don't want to pick up noise from the container.
Thanks in advance.
