WRUS537 Posted November 13, 2022 Report Share Posted November 13, 2022 I purchased a dipole, which is 68.8 ft long, I had planned to mount it about 1 or 2ft above the roof ( I have an HOA) using poles and an insulator at each end. However my roof is only 52 ft long. My question is what do I do with the extra 8 or so feet on each side? Can I just run it down the edge of the roof? For the coax, do I have to run it straight down the middle of the roof or can I run it along the roof top with the wire? I have an HF to listen to and want to have an antenna ready to transmit when I get my license or Lord forbid and emergency. Thanks for everyone's help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
