- Indoor antennas for VHF and UHF are almost always poor performers
- Its only like 2 feet from my head, so I'm rather restricted on the power I can run through it.
I ended up ordering a channel master eve bracket from Amazon, because it was the best price I found, and it was one of the few that would accept a 2" mast. Now, I don't need a 2" mast, but I always prefer to have things over-engineered whenever possible. After it came, like most projects, it sat in my garage for 2 months!
Putting this bracket on first, allows you to assemble the bottom bracket, attach it to the mast, and then position the bottom bracket by sliding the mast up through the top bracket and tightening it down. This basically "hangs" the bottom bracket from the mast and top bracket, so that you can freely position, level, and then screw the bottom bracket fast. Easy!
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
