clamps work great and anyone can make them.

the stock, he drilled the holes for the 3" U-bolts and saddles to 
attach.  On the vertical section, he cut a notch about 1/4" from the 
bottom.  He put two hose clamps through the notch on each side of the L

723-7145 recently.  Allen is great.  He has all kinds of stainless 
U-bolts and clamps for building antennas and even more amazing... He
