I have a client that wants to put up a M2 3 element 6 meter yagi sidemounted at
the peak of a metal roof on his house. Our first thought is that it's a bad
idea from the standpoint of reflections, but we would like to hear from anyone
that may have already done this.
He's currently building a new house, and the roof is done, so changing the roof
is out of the question :) But he wants to bum around on 6 meters this fall and
winter nonetheless. I can get anywhere from 4' to 8' above the roof peak, which
is very steep-abt 8 in 12 pitch.
The benefit for doing this hopefully will be from being able to get the antenna
40' in the air to give him a signal until he gets a tower up.
We've laid the groundwork for a real first class station, utilizing all 1/2"
and 7/8" heliax cable inside conduit, polyphasers, custom entry ports etc.
What's the collective thoughts of the group, will it work, will there be
problems, and has anyone ever done this?
