Re: Connecting to parents house 5km away?


[re: MrSaffron] [link to this post]
 
I am wondering if planning permission is needed for it, especially as there may be local by laws stopping the erecting of large poles.

May need to phone the local planning department before buying anything.

I think planning depends on height. 8m might be pushing it, most houses are about 6m with a chimney. I guess most TV aerials are <1m, they don't need planning. A quick call to the local council would be best I guess.

I think you can add the heights of the 2 masts together, if both houses have a TV mast of course.

Not sure I know what you mean? Do you have to add all the masts together to get total height?

It's mentioned in the link I posted.
Note that the antenna height means the height of both the transmit and the receive antenna i.e. for a link distance of 20km both the transmit and receive antennas must be 22.5mtrs above ground level (at 5.8GHz). The two antennas do not have to be at the same height. As a rough guide, if the transmit antenna is at 16mtrs the receive antenna should be at about 29mtrs giving a total height of 45mtrs.
Or maybe not smile

Anyone know what the difference is between the antennas that are dishes and the ones that are not? Much like this
