Powerbeam mounting set ups.

Hi all,

 

Just curious how you resedential guys have mounted your powerbeams to your houses? I am wondering if a roof/eve mount similar to a direct TV antenna mount would work. The powerbeam is obviously heavier than a Direct TV dish and not sure how it would hold up in moderate winds with that mount. Any simple mounting ideas you guys have would be great!

I'd use the chimney straps and pole. Maybe straps above and below the dish.
