The base of most commercial vertical antennas is a long, metal plate that is bent at both ends and has a 'hole' at the upper end through which the antenna is mounted [and from which it is insulated by something like PVC] and has some form of attachment to hold the base of the antenna on the lower end. This plate is attached to a base pipe [driven in the ground] by two U-bolts and hardware.
IF you wish to swivel the antenna down, you could add a 'parallel' plate that would attach to the base pipe and then be attached to the 'bent' antenna attachment by a couple bolts and standoffs.
To rotate, remove ONE of the bolts/standoffs.
Does anyone have a good method to mount a vertical on a mast, so as to be able to swivel or fold down easy? It would be used with an r7000 vertical.
