I live on top of Niles Hill? about 2,300 ASL? and the winds is unbelievable high...
I lost part of my shingle roof twice and the insurance company dropped me.....
Now, I have a metal roof, fantastic, no problem with 60 mph winds.....

However, I have a 40 ft tower with a 2 meter repeater antenna.....It seems that the metal?
roof interferes with the 2 meter repeater....? Also, my 160 meter OCF pattern has changed
a bit toward Northeast....
As a summer project I have help to erect 2 towers? 40 and 50 ft,? If more time 89 ft Self support....
antennas,? M2 3 el 40 yagi....Mosley TA34XL,......2 stacked 105CAS....M2 6M7JHC

Does anyone know how to figure how far the towers should be away from the house ?? It seems
the metal roof? 80 ft long has some interference of 2 meter and my? OCF dipole....

Tnx? de Skip? K3CC
