The Starlink dish mounts on the pipe adaptor and the wire can be routed inside the pipe. The connector that attaches the wire to the dish is strain relieved when it is captured between the dish mounting pipe and the pipe adaptor. I mounted a 2 in. pipe sticking out of my roof through a roof flashing and attached it below the roof securely to the trusses. It is a very stable installation. Dan didn’t tell me about this option but he should have.
