Wifi Booster Tube on the roof

Ok,

I am getting a Wifi booster tube and am thinking about attaching it to the batwing. How tough is it to run the cable down the fridge vent? Once I get it into the vent how do I get it out? Or should I just attach it to the ladder on the stern? All the electronics are in the back anyway.

I ran mine down the same hole as the TV cable. Just removed the 4 screws on the plate, ran the wifi cable and resealed with dicor. I have a directional flat panel 2.4Ghz 14Dbi from simplewifi attached below the TV antenna. So far it works great.

Antenna:

Do the wires flap on your roof at all?? Where I live it is windy ALL the time so I was wondering if I had to eternabond down the wires or not.

This is an old photo. Yes I used eternabond to secure the solar cables. You can secure the wifi cable to the TV antenna.

Great information folks. I think for the short term I will simply mount it on my ladder and run it in a window. Long term though I want to get it onto that bat wing and run it in through a more permanent position. FYSA, I am not mechanically inclined. I stare are things for days before I start a project
