Scatter interference - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

If I want to erect an antenna close to a carport (metal roof), will I get scatter interference from the roof of the carport? How can I determine if this will be a problem?

Hi there,

You have to supply some more details:
- Antenna type and gain
- size of the surface
- position of the antenna on the surface

For example if you are talking about a sattelite dish (high directivity) that is pointing to the sky you won't have a problem.
On the other an antenna that has low directivity would interact much more with it's surrounding.
