It is not clear from your post what is not straight.  Google search did not
show any pictures of your station.  Since you mentioned pinning and the Slip
Knott, I am guessing that you mean that the antennas are slipping on the
mast and facing different directions.  If you use a heavy enough mounting
plate and good saddle clamps it should not slip.  DX Engineering saddle
clamps work great, but even muffler clamps hold pretty well.

Does anyone have a suggestion other than pinning or the Tennadynes Slip
for keeping antennas from moving around in the wind? All of my aluminum has
sprouted at over 100 feet in the air and is a bear to keep straight in these

winds that we get here in Florida in some of these storms. Thank you for
