Thanks for your insight ! Reason for short tower for satelitte antennas: 1)
for apogee shots, the booms will miss the ground 2) because I have assorted
rug-rats in the neighborhood, 3) because I have the spare tower ;)
As to your 2nd point, I could do both. The power box and its ground are
behind the garage and reachable.
