While I plan to stick with antennas in the 24 inch range, my logic is that if I do happen to contact a tree or something else the magnet would let go before any damage is done. Then I get back up on the roof and reset the antenna.
I am looking at installing 3 antennas, so I am keen on attaching to the false awning, if I can get a decent ground plane.
I am also nervous about drilling down into the coach for the coax.
