... Finally, how are you going to handle the cable entry? If you want the adjustability then you're going to end up with extra cable exposed, depending on where the unit is set. Even if you just want to find the "sweet spot" for a permanent fixture, that's where the cable entry should be in the first place... and to prove all this you'll need to have the unit powered up and operating....
I could test everything with the cable running outside the mast. (And I could play with the radar and display without having to wait for the installation to be complete, just plug and play, so to speak.)
Then I could put the cable entry at the highest point that works for close-in reflections.
