|I an deciding the best place to install my 2 meter vertical antenna. I know VHF is line of sight to the repeaters. My question is how far away do I need to be from lets say the roof of my house. I am installing a 20 foot mast to place the 9 foot high antenna on but the top of the roof is still higher than the antenna which will block the line of sight repeaters.
Will this be a problem or need I move the antenna 20 feet or so away from the house?
