notes about how to mount a dish antenna on a basic sloped roof house.

Overview

The basic concept for this mounting is to provide a sturdy stand with minimum impact on the roof. There is an attic air vent near the peak of the roof around which it will be possible to hang the assembly. A braided steel wire about 20' long should be sufficient.

The design uses a 4x4 piece of 1/2" plywood with a 2' 2x4 standing straight up and braced with 1/4" plywood triangles. The roof has an average slope at about 18 degrees so there are 3 cuts that must be made at that angle.

See the diagrams below.

Parts

  1. 1 x 2x4 board x 4'
  2. 1 x 2x2 board x 4'
  3. 1 x 4'x4' 1/2" plywood
  4. 16 x #10 x 1.5" wood screw, philips bevel head
  5. 20 x #10 x 2.0" wood screw, philips bevel head
  6. 20' braded cable
  7. 2 x wire rope clamp w/ thimble
  8. 1 x 24" x 2' conduit
  9. 2 x 2"x4" U-bolts
  10. wood glue
  11. Paint and/or water sealer to apply to the wood.
