Starlink in new location on a temporary test stand.
Cut down 5 large trees and moved the #starlink test stand 10 feet.
Big improvement, 50% less time obstructed, down around 1.75 minutes/hour.
New test stand location and some major tree removal has gotten #starlink obstructions down to 50 seconds per hour.
final location after removing the main north problem trees
#starlink obstructions down to 30 seconds per hour
This is close to acceptable territory for me, but I do have my eye on 3 trees to the east and a limb of the remaining problem north tree.
@joeyh Clearly the solution is to install a 300m wind turbine w/ mast / cellular repeater / microwave relay / satcoms station.
Or you could move to the Great Plains where trees pose fewer limitations.
