Where did you buy the antenna


mattmilk5

rokland.com


Medical243

Did it come with cable or no?


mattmilk5

no, I had to buy the cable on its own from rokland

I like Rokland antennas!


Gullible_Moose_9495

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


mattmilk5

oakville is a sweet spot for helium


-GAIA-Sub

Love it dude. Grand blvd and upper middle road also a good spot on top of the hill.


mattmilk5

are your miners in oakville hooked up to outdoor antennas? or are you on stock?


-GAIA-Sub

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 ?


mattmilk5

Between upper middle and dundas. Do you know the people who live at the places you have these setup?


-GAIA-Sub

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.


mattmilk5

oh sweet! do you leave the miners in a case outside or wire them inside?


-GAIA-Sub

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


mattmilk5

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.


mattmilk5

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.


SympathyOver1244

greater than 1 in Milton on 5 dbi is easy


ZillionBucks

It is..unless your surrounded by 2 to 3 relayed miners in your hex...ugh
