I thought about doing it that way but I don't think I would have got much higher cause the board wouldn't be able to go up very high without another support bracket. I've got to get a brace for the top of that post to make it a bit more stable though for when the wind picks up.
Plus I'm already running 30 feet of Coax and the next step is 50 feet which had a higher cable loss so I decided 30 feet was right around the mark I wanted.
In the end I may end up getting some type of external enclosure with a wireless router and go out and put the antenna on top of a 120 foot tree then run the cable down a tree to the external enclosure that would house a wireless receiver that would plug into my wireless card. Then put a 3 watt amp in between the two.
@ mkdmc ehh I'll probably end up painting it to make it blend a bit better. Not a big deal though for me I'm secluded off on a hill so it doesn't matter to me.
