I thought it would be nice to setup my own LoraWan public Gateway in order to extend "The Things Network" network. But in order to do that I think that I will need to use a proper antenna in order to achieve maximum range.
So I thought that if I use a television antenna (Yagi Uda or similar antennas) it would be an affordable way to achieve a decent range, but would I achieve that or I am saying nonsense?
The proposed gateway location is at single storey building (~3m Altitude) at Acharnes, Greece. The possible obstacles will be taller buildings ~10m high. Also in direct sight the is a mountain as well but I do not care about this obstacle. I want to cover as much distance as possible with a budget for antenna less than 20 euros.
