I am building a house extension and part of the works involves adding a
new hip roof made of corrugated iron. I was thinking I would pass a
50mm pvc pipe through the roof with a tee and then mount two conical gps
timing antennas on top of it. I am in a low point and don't have
visibility of the horizons ( I'm not in the out-back).
My question is should I mount on the peak of the roof? How close can I
mount two antennas from each other? Can they interfere with each other?
I am also in the midst of some tall trees - although my new roof will be
pretty high it will still be below the tallest trees.
Of course the main reason for this is I want to do some accurate timing
