I want to side-mount a vertically polarized long boom 2M Yagi onto Rohn
25 or Rohn 35 (slightly larger gauge, made for Motorola, that's not the
official designation). I may or may not put it on a rotator, and at
first will lock it down in the direction of the local DX club repeater.
I have another one of the same antenna that I'll mount horizontally.
What I'm looking for are:
1) An insulated mast section, as recommended by the mfr (KLM) for
2) Some sort of suitable stand-off hardware or improvised method of doing it
3) Other hardware to make it work
One idea I've toyed with is even more primative -- bolt a horizontally
oriented 5 ft section of 2-in mast to the tower cross-braces, and bolt
the antenna to it. This way I don't need an insulated section,but I've
got to be quite careful about the orientation of the horizontal piece,
since it (alone) determines the antenna azimuth. I've got the 5 ft
section of 2-in, but no suitable mounting hardware.
