Yup, very simple but looks like you have enough there to monitor whatever you need!

Using these for masts - http://www.radioshack.com/product/i...ntenna+mast&kw=antenna+mast&parentPage=search

I made the "elbows" by taking two mast and welding them together. Worked slick.

The antennas are all grounded, or atleast the coax is. All the coax runs go into grounding blocks then to a ground rod. If lightning hits close enough I don't think it's gonna matter, lol.

As for the antennas. I have two of these: http://www.radioshack.com/product/i...Type/Scanner/HAM&fbc=1&parentPage=family

The tallest antenna is VHF high band. (got from ebay works really well). The other two shorter verticle antennas are dual band Antenex base antennas.

Sweet. Nice choices, and good job of attaching all that to your chimney. Good way to maximise height without a mast, tower, or tripod.

You've got the same problem as me with all those trees surrounding you. They totally eat up my 800mhz signals coming from the north. And east. And west. :lol:
