How high should my mast be?


I have a steel roof with a 4/12 pitch on the building which I plan to install an antenna on. How high above the roof should the antenna be mounted?

Tech Tip:

Your antenna needs to be at least 10-12 feet above a metal roof to prevent reflected signal from getting into the bottom of the antenna.
