Mounting post
« on: February 14, 2012, 10:51:47 PM »
Hello. I recently saw a photo somewhere of a station mounted on a wooden pole. The pole was built with two wooden posts set in the ground and a third post in the center that was able to be pivoted down for maintenance. I have gone through all of the photos in the forum that I can find trying to track this photo down again but have had no luck. Does anyone have any information on this set up or perhaps know the photo I am referring to? I am in the beginning stages of planning my station and would like to try and develop a similar set up. Thank you!

Great. If you can, post some pictures of the base you build. It may help others in the future. :-)
