I am considering putting up a Scantenna , the issues I have where we live is height. The wind wreaks havok on everything around here , the homebrew dipole I built is about 5ft off of the ground and does a good job for the 800's. I want to put the Scantenna around 10ft which would keep give adequate coverage from the wind , is it even worth while to put up a pole for this height and antenna. We live in a small town and the coverage I want to receive is 40 miles and less, the RG6 run will be less than 25' . The radios that will be on the Scantenna will be a Pro2055 and a BCT-8 , using the dipole on the Pro2055 at present but want to gain more coverage. My listening options range from 155.000 through 868.000 Motorola type 2, thanks for the input.
