I thought about a tower for a little bit but my wife would never go for it I am trying the eaves mount because I did not want to go through the hassle of trying to secure a roof mount and penetrations with my cathedral ceiling. The mounting bracket comes with 1/4"x2" wood screws that I will be installing into hardiplank that I believe is backed by a 1"x4" board. I think they will be solid. Looking at most examples of chimney mounts and tripods, they seem to all use a larger separation. In your experience, have you encountered any general guidelines regarding antenna height and the separation between the mount points?
