I am setting up a base station at my house. I will have a 440 mhz yagi
and a 2 meter ground plane antenna. I am trying to figure out how to
mount these on my roof. At the end of the house where my chimney is
would be perfect. It is a wood and viynle chimney, not brick. It is not
used. (No fires or gas logs.)
Would it be two much to mount a mast and two antennas on this?
I sometimes get high winds in the summer during thunder storms.
Assuming that the UHF yagi is a single yagi and not a big, rotatable array
you shouldn't have any problems with wind loading. Just use a wrap-around
chimney mount and a 10 foot mast. You can even get these at *ugh*
