like my material andwant to help me with causing it delight consider giving my direct through the link in the aboutmy direct division i hugely appreciate it let’s go noobs so first so i don’t have to explain andrecord this while i’m on a ladder 20 paws in the air what i’ve done is kind of made a setup in mybasement i used leant this bit of timber on the wall so let’s assume that this right here is thepeak of my house this is where i want to install right so before we get into the actualinstallation let’s go through appropriate tools that you need to get this chore done first thingyou’re going to need is a tall layer once again i’m going to be 20 feet in the air wheni’m doing this for real on my home so i’m going to have a huge expansion ladder thati’ll be putting up there also we’re going to be properly grounding this system so i have to poundan eight paw footing saloon into the ground so you need a little bit of a shorter ladder so igot a five hoof ladder that “i m keeping” around extremely for little rackets like that those are pretty muchthe large-scale things that you’re going to need now some of the small hand tools that you’ll need just asharpie or a pencil or whatever you got to realize some assessments you’re going to need a teach with anut operator on it you know a socket move a wrench a phillips chief screwdriver wire strippers wire cutters and a small sledge hammer now let’s go through all the components thatyou need to complete this enterprise first thing that you’re going to need is a mount what i didis i went on amazon and i find a 22 inch universal tv feeler attach this is basically whatit is right here comes in a carton it’s got these bars on now so you can change the tilt of yourantenna weapon the weapon likewise come here for some u-bolts and the fix brackets thatyou’re going to use to connect the to connect the feeler to the actual mount in addition to that you need some hardware to putthat onto the wall so what i have here is just some self self tapping um these are actuallyfor sheet metal roofs so they have a little weather seal on them that route it keeps theiryou know any weather out so those job real good then you have the antenna right so we got thisagain the rack wireless 8d bi fiberglass feeler okay this is the antenna itself it comes with amale end type connector the parcel too comes with some hardware so you got the u-boltsand then you too have another set of fastens okay and then it comes with a self-feeder cable aswell now in my specific setup i’m actually not going to be using the u-bolts from either one ofthese kits and i’m also not exercising this feeder boundary so we can mounted those digression next let’s talk aboutsome smaller hardware that you’re going to need i got fourth inch vehicle boltsthat are five inches long you need two you’re going to need some washersi got four of them four nuts and two fasten washers okay in michigan we aresubject to weather in the summertime so a good deal of ages we’ll have gales and material like that so wealways want to make sure that you properly ground this antenna so what i have is a a lightningarrester with a grind connector on it so this is going to actually hook to that and like i saidwe’re going to run that to the grounding bar i got 12 measure solid copper ground cable now for my setupi need really under 50 hoofs in order to do that so i got a spool of 50 feet this you can buy cut tolength you can get various kinds of portions okay you need your grounding bar clamp this iswhat fastens the wire to the actual ground bar now in my next video i’m actually going todo a epoch fault of me doing this outside for the real install but something i want topoint out real quick a little trick i learned last-place occasion i was trying to do a anchoring barroom alot of beings will make their set saloon and they’ll start smacking away and pounding thisthing into the ground the next thing you know the top of your sand rail is pancaked overright and now you can’t get your fasten on it so always make sure you put your clamp on firstand secure that down before “youre starting” pounding this into the ground that practice you can justloosen it put your wire in and you’re good to go otherwise you appoint yourself a mess becauseagain you’ll flannel-cake that as you’re hitting it last pair interesting thing hereis just some self-tapping nails i use these with with my mount cable tiesthese come in handy and mostly what you do is once you’ve extend your wire then you go backthrough it and you bolt this into the wall and then you can zip tie your cables it various kinds of holdseverything tight and i’ll appearance you how to do that and then the last thing is going to be yourlmr 400 feeler cable now like i was telling you there’s the self-feeder cable that actuallycomes with the antenna i’m not working this mainly because i wanted somethingbeefier i needed something longer and because i’m put a lightning arrester on itthe fittings on that actually will not work with my setup so what i did is i observed this companycalled mpd digital it’s a pretty cool website what they do is they build up custom lengthand custom connectors so you can get this to whatever length you require and whatever connectorsyou need for your specific setup again those links will be in the descriptions and on my website atheliumnew.com i have the rack hotspot copy 2 which has a female rp sma connector on itso i had to get a male rp sma connector it to a female n-type connector um so thisgoes into my arrester into the antenna so on and so forth now the thing that i don’thave here today to show you um is the actual outdoor enclosure that i have i also purchasedthat outdoor enclosure from rack wireless so mostly what i’ll is being done and i’ll do anothervideo once i get it and i actually get the miner um formerly i get that up on the wall then i’mgonna be doing poe power over ethernet i’m going to run an ethernet line out andpower the unit outside in an enclosing so that’s why if i didn’t do it that waymy antenna cable would have had to be 30 40 foot long which there is a calculator outthere you can find that on my website very um that actually shows you your your signal loss umand that you don’t want to do that so you always want to be as short as you can so at any rate solet’s get this thing installed so um we’re going to take our do our mount and mostly whati do is we’re just going to line this up right now again just in case while you’re installingit if something moves or jiggles you want to have just kind of a reference point so i always liketo mark kind of where my fucks are supposed to go that path again while i’m installing this ifit moves on me i have a quick way to go back so i’m going to make my drill a couple ofthese self-tapping uh metal roof bolts and we’re going to get this installed here huh all right so now that we have thatand mostly what we’re going to do is we’re going to pull this up andfigure out the direction that it is necessary to so let’s come up and you crave thispart to be level so let’s is my finding that you stiffen these bolts down a littlebit and then let’s crank them in now looks pretty good it’s in there pretty welllet’s brace this one back up all right now that’s good to gosomething i didn’t support you on camera but when i do this actually outside what i’ll dois i’ll caulk around all this as well time to make sure that we don’t get any water going into thehouse but now so now that the mounting arm um or the antenna organize whatever you want to call it isup and ready to go next thing we’re going to do is we’re going to build our secure plan now thereason i didn’t use the u-bolts is because again the u-bolts just come through and um i just don’tlike it i don’t think it’s it’s strong enough for whatever reason it’s just me personallybut i actually appreciated in another youtube video this guy had a pretty cool setup so whathe did is he took he took these clamps and he’s going to build out improve out his clamp sohe’s got one there and one there leant them together washer all right let’s apply the other one in and the above reasons you demand posture shafts isbecause it’s going to fit into that slot that direction when you’re stiffening down youdon’t have to have two wrenches in your hand all right so let’s come this on where we want stay right about there you’re going to take yourwrench and you’re going to tighten this down all right so now we got asecured mount onto the actual arm and then what we’re goingto do is we’re going to make exactly a little here and you’re going to want to makesure that the gap of the bolts fits both of these brackets once youknow that that’s good second set one and two for washers put your other bracket on a pair more washers then your fasten washers and your nuts all right so thatlooks good now you wanted to go those flutes to be concluded in thesegrooves right here on that clamp and there’s your feeler so now what we do isnow we lurch and we lay in our lightning arrester just like that now this iswhere you’re going to take your anchor wire i’m not going to actuallyspool this all the way out but what you would do is strip off the end like that now there’s a little red-faced secure inhere we’re going to back this out and what you do is you actually clamp thison there now again i am just have one of these so i’m not going to do this right now because i’mactually going to be doing it outside but simply to kind of show you so you are able to crimp this down andthen you reattach back to the lightning arrester like so and then you run your cable downand then to the wall and then down to where your grounding rod’s at all rightso there’s that and then from there i mean all you’re gonna do is you’re gonna grabyour cable this is your antenna cable and the same simply thing fix it up like so now mysetup again would have the outdoor pen so formerly that comes in then i’llbe able to mount the outdoor enclosure on the side of my houseand then i’ll run this down and into my enclosing and then what i’m doing iswe’ll end up putting some zip ties and everything and get those extending good now precisely to kind ofshow you real quick um again with these ties what you can do is let’s say i’m hooking up my foot wire what i would do is zip knot iton a little not all the way and then you can take thesescrews that i was talking about all right time screw these in wherever so again this will running around the sideof the house into the grounding prohibit in the field that style we make sure that we don’tyou know have any static energy build up um or if lightning were to strike then we’reproperly sanded um so yeah so that’s the real you know thousand foot look at how to get thisthing set again your setup might be a little bit different than pit um they’re prettymuch the same just some of your connectors and things might be a little bit different butyou just got to kind of consider what it is that you’re looking to do and what componentsyou have um or you know what’s available to you and you know get this thing installed now my nextepisode what i’m going to do is i’m actually going to go outside and i’m going to shoot my atime indiscretion of me doing this so you kind of visualize the whole process outside so once again guysthanks for stopping by thanks for checking me out if you like what you met today thump thatsubscribe button turn on those alerts if you would be so kind and consider donatingto the channel so i can continue to produce this material i enormously appreciate it and iwill catch you on the next one take care
