I will be getting hooked up soon to a fixed high speed internet company and was wondering how high can I go with a pushup pole installation. I already have a 50 foot pole which can be extended with additional sections. If the signal is found lets say at 60 feet could I use my pole and if so how deep should I bury it and how many guy wires should I use and what intervals should I place them. Any advice would be appreciated,you can email me at jcmccranie@msn.com or call me at 229-834-2737, Thanks, J.C.

The answer may well depend on how far away the provider's signal is. With this free mapping software and details about your provider's transmitter site, your can determine your needs.

If the service is provisioned properly, you may enjoy some pretty good throughput.

When you say  grid antenna, means a beam, very narrow beamwith, think higher , less stability, a lot of wires, you must be sure  where is the direction  to make the connection, also  the power loss in the coax,  there are several factors that you must take a look before use push up, i will recomend use at most 50ft , use the less coax as possible and very tight all the guy wires.
good luck
