Mast mounting

Postby ben2311 » Wed Jun 20, 2018 11:39 am

Hi, just a newbie question, what is a good way to mount the mast to the house going to just above the roof / chimney level. Have looked at the TK clamps or 3ft by 2" patio mount but don't know what is best.

The type of bracket is really dependent upon your location & the antenna & the mounting pole size.
I live in a sheltered location, but I use heavier duty mounting brackets than stanogs68. But my VHF antenna is mounted on a 6 foot long pole & the antenna is about 7 - 8 feet tall, so a lot of pressure is put onto the mounting bracket when it's windy, even if only the top half of the antenna is above the ridge.

The front antenna is a lower HF antenna, the back (& higher,) antenna is a three band collinear that I use mainly for scanning.

Like the look of your HF antenna :smiles: What make is it & does it cover HF from 2Mhz to 30Mhz?
