Determining Whe re to Place the Ant enna

You can place and mount your antenna using several good methods. A flat, clear, horizontal roof area on the side of the building that your antenna needs to face is probably the best mounting location. A flat vertical wall that faces the direction that your antenna needs to point can also be used. The peak or the ridgeline of a roof is the worst location to mount an antenna. Figure 4-1 shows examples of some of the best mounting locations.
