If your local  Ace Hardware or plumbing supply (where your plumber buys pipe 
and fittings)  does not have them try <A 
HREF="www.dxengineering.com">www.dxengineering.com</A>  for the complete 
U-bolt/saddle clamp assembly to fit antenna tubing sizes;  or McMaster Carr or 
Grainger for pipe size U-bolts.  

One thing - stainless galls and it's comparatively brittle. Use a good 
anti-sieze compound on the threads before you put the nuts on, and don't use a 
cheater bar on the wrench. I have had good luck with Break Free CLP from the 
sporting goods department at WalMart and most good gun shops - and an 8" long 
end gives you all the leverage you need.
