New Miner Setup
By - mattmilk5
I am very close Burlington can see mine lol your not getting me tho 😂 I got the 5.8 dbi got around 34 witnesses at the moment going around 1 to 1.5 HNT a day
Burlington and Oakville are both great spots for helium
Yes very happy so far think I have payed it off like twice lol
Where did you buy the antenna
Did it come with cable or no?
no, I had to buy the cable on its own from rokland
I like Rokland antennas!
Only thing I like better than a Rokland antenna is a large body of water to skip Helium miner beacons across!
has is been producing 500 a month average?
Looking like Oakville ? I have a few miners set up in Oakville. Upper middle road and trafalgar area
oakville is a sweet spot for helium
Love it dude. Grand blvd and upper middle road also a good spot on top of the hill.
are your miners in oakville hooked up to outdoor antennas? or are you on stock?
Outdoor set ups. Mostly chimney attachments. Perfect to skip across the water like yours :) you’re in the Oakville area as well I assume ? North or south of upper middle road ?
Between upper middle and dundas. Do you know the people who live at the places you have these setup?
You have a great set up. I found your hotspot. I just advertised around the neighborhood about the mining and got interest a while back. Plus a couple investment properties in Oakville that I set the miners up at.
oh sweet! do you leave the miners in a case outside or wire them inside?
Wire them inside. The winters here are too harsh for the miners even in a case I believe. Build a shelf in one room and have the LMR400 cable go through the ceiling out onto the roof
yeah that’s what i’ve got going on. I thought the same thing about the harsh winters we get here. wish I lived in miami
Hey I'm in Hamilton looking to mount on the rooftop as well. How do you ensure the LMR cable are securely fastened to the roof? I'm worried drilling into the shingles/wood as it may cause roof leaks down the road if the screws expand/retract due to the harsh winters/summers.
Roof top setup is definitely the way to go. With regards to clamping it down to the roof- I didn’t… I just let it hang loose on the shingles until it got to the side of the house. Going down the house I just used “cable clamps” that I drilled into the brick to keep the cable tight against the wall
Doing 1.5 in Milton with an 8dbi on roof. The second one is going up on the weekend with a 5dbi with hopefully 1 a day.
greater than 1 in Milton on 5 dbi is easy
It is..unless your surrounded by 2 to 3 relayed miners in your hex...ugh
