I am amazed at how small and thin some commercial antenna mounting plates
are, especially on large antennas.  I do not hear of any failures so
apparently they are adequately strong or there is just not that much
pressure on them. In the US it is easy to purchase 6061 aluminum plate cut
to any size in a variety of thicknesses and then drill holes to suit your

I am reinstalling a 15M6DX. Boom is 2.5 inches

The mast to boom plate seems very small for a 44 ft boom antenna, is just 8
x 8 inches

Anyone replaced this factory plate with another option?  Where to find it?
