Jesse,I am running a DynaDish5 mounted on a 20' mast LOS to Haystack 28.02 miles. My location is only 3.8 miles from Paine but terrain is in the way. 73,Drew, KG7SXF Sent via the Samsung Galaxy S7 active, an AT&T 4G LTE smartphone

I have a couple options.1) if 5 GHz can pass through double-paned glass, then I could point an antenna through the window from my work office in downtown Seattle, connecting with the hubs nearby or across the water.2) if 5 GHz can pass through tree leaves, I could mount the dish on the mast holding the center of my HF fan dipole, as shown here: https://www.qrz.com/db/kj7yls At a height of 30 feet it might be able to connect with Paine.3) if 5 GHz can pass through a thin piece of plywood and tree leaves, I could mount the antenna in my attic. That should be tall enough to jump over my neighbors house I think.Which of these would work? I'm leaning towards the first option. The second would work but it would just be more logistically difficult. I believe the third option would suffer significant signal degradation, yes?As far as antennas go, the LHG 5 seems to have pretty good performance, is within my hobby budget, and should work for the links that I have in mind, yes? It should also be lighter and more wind-resistant since its hollow. I should be able to mount that on a pole, connect PoE, and then work on the routing, correct? If this is a decent choice, where is a good place to order the International edition?Thanks for any advice with this!JesseKJ7YLS
