We’re not all lucky enough to be able to mount enormous antennas on our roofs. The ACT has pretty strict rules on antenna height – unless you make a development application.
Here’s a great video by a fellow Aussie on how to install a simple, inexpensive antenna roof mount on a concrete tile roof.
- Get some 14G 90mm roofing screws
- Use plenty of silicon
- Use a sharp masonry bit in a cordless drill WITHOUT the hammer mode enabled – cracks the tiles…
Radioparts (based in Melbourne) sells a great range of antenna mounting accessories. Their shipping isn’t horrendous, and the prices are some of the best I’ve found.
