> For my homebrew antennas I fasten a small plate of aluminum to the mast
a u-bolt. The plate has holes on each end and I connect a 3/8 EJ
to each side of the plate for the boom truss. For larger antennas I mount
piece to angle stock to the mast, perpendicular to the boom and use two
turnbuckles on each half of the boom (four total) to create a V truss.
You don't even need any kind of plate. Just mount the eye of the
turnbuckle on the end of the U-bolt and use a big washer to capture it under
nut and you're good to go!
