What type of mount are you currently using and what size is your antenna?  I
have had good success mounting very large yagis with muffler clamps and also
DX Engineering saddle clamps.  I usually use four clamps.  You should also
use an adequately strong mounting plate (1/4"+  thick) or it will bend and
your bolts will not remain tight.

My antenna periodically rotates on the mast because of wind and storms. I
have tightened everything as much as I know how. This throws off my
direction indicator.

What are the best ways to lock the antenna and rotator to the mast?
