Raising Dishy Elevation

Recommended Posts

I have some pretty tall trees surrounding my home, and some of them show up on the obstructions map.

Is there a formula I can use to calculate how the field of view would be improved by raising Dishy?

I currently have Dishy on the roof, and I'm considering mounting it on a pole which would raise it 20'.

I am almost certain that the right mathematical formula could predict that for you, provided you could provide the exact height each of the trees. Is there any way for you to yourself up to that level with your phone and the Starlink app? It has a mode that will scan for obstructions for you and tell you whether the location is good for the antenna...
