CPA19 Wiring

I'm going to be ordering a CPA19 and was wondering if someone could explain the wiring and where to place the CPA19. Should it be attached to the mast? Or would it be ok inside about 15' away?

Another noob question.... how far can the CPA19 be from the antenna? If it's within 10-15 feet, is that ok? Or does it need to be mounted like right to the pole?

Would something like the Channel Master 4221HD work as well as the u4000? I'm looking for something that Amazon sells due to their easy return policy.
