Cellular & WiFi "plumbing" on sailboat

Vote 0 Votes

Looking at how to provide boosted wifi and cellular to deck level and cabin of our 40' sailboat.

We'll have a wired ethernet, and a WIFI-1 bridge probably located on the cabin bulkhead to cover cockpit/deck/cabin. Thinking of a Ubiquity bullet or similar mounted halfway up on the mizzen above self leveling radar.

Room up there for a Cellular booster as well. but not sure where to put the "in Vehicle" side of the cellular as we don't have a nice Faraday cage as in a car.

Is 15 feet of vertical with a leveled dipole sufficient to avoid feedback?
