  1. I get my kit tomorrow (well, it's FedEx, so you never really know...). And the Starlink Pole Mount arrived today (Sunday). Although I'm going to have an electrician do the install, I want to make sure he does it all properly...I don't believe he's ever done a Starlink install before. What is this hole on the pole (yellow arrow)? The instructions refer to both a "drain hole" and a "cable routing hole"...are they one in the same, or am I missing something? There is a much smaller hole at the very bottom of the bottom pole and the very bottom bottom of the top pole...🤔 Thanks for your help!
  2. I have found a licensed electrician who will install it. I'm in NW TN. From reading as much as I can, I see that the provided cable might be a bit on the 'delicate' side, and that sometimes the connection to the dish works itself loose/out a bit? If I put it on the roof, I would be unable to fix that or even change the cable if needed. So, I was thinking a pole in the back yard. I just used the app again and about 30' from the house is PERFECT (according to the app). Thoughts on roof vs pole? (electrician says he knows how to properly bury cable encased in PVC...) Thanks!
  3. Hi! A little back story to help fit your responses, if you do respond. I live in the absolute middle of nowhere in NW TN. Current internet provider is Frontier (hahahaha) at 3.0 down and 0.4 up. I'm a widow. I'm old. No children to help. No way for me to safely access the roof. Picture below shows where the Starlink dish should be set for a "GREAT" location. There are a couple other locations that the Starlink app said were GREAT, but this place already has a hole(s) in the brick, going into a spare bedroom I call the Computer Room. The acceptable distance from the house, based on the app, is about 50'. I was thinking a ground tripod, with a 10'-20' high mast (I am 5' tall and held my phone over my head using the Starlink obstruction app)? I could hire someone to trench the cable into the ground maybe. And then I could go into the existing hole in the brick? The pics are facing north. However, I have been told on Facebook that the cable is not rated to be buried, even if placed in a PVC pipe of some sort. I am also having an impossible time finding anyone to hire the job out! That's why the ground mount was appealing to me. I sure hope you don't tell me I'm nuts because I just today put the $99 deposit down on the system. Thanks for your help.
