Title: Antenna Installation for VSAT - Roof Location
Post by SkyvisionVSAT on Aug 24th, 2011 at 10:36am


Roof locations present unique concerns for an antenna installation, such as access to the antenna, the need to properly anchor the antenna mount, and terrestrial interference. Consider these factors before deciding to mount the antenna on a roof.

If you decide on a roof location, make sure that the location provides a clean, flat, secure, and construction-free environment with:

• A lightning arrestor that is properly grounded.



• An easily accessible point-of-entry for two coaxial cables, or a location where the installer can create a point-of-entry.



• Secure access to the antenna away from unauthorized personnel.



• An antenna surface capable of supporting the weight of the VSAT plus its wind load.



• One 230V AC or 110V AC outlet near the installation site for use during both the installation process and
subsequent maintenance work.



• A clear path or empty conduit to run a two inch minimum diameter coaxial cable from the building’s
point-of-entry to the base of the antenna.



• Site security. The remote gateway antenna can create harmful non-ionizing radio frequency radiation to
humans. To avoid this, the antenna must be placed in a controlled area with restricted human access to the
physical air space between the antenna reflector and the output of the radio frequency amplifier.
