Modified Camera Tripod Mount for the Elk Antenna

K0PIR

I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

Simple but brilliant! I will be retiring at the end of the year and plan to get involved in satellite communication. This came at the perfect time. I wondered how I would be able to hold this antenna for very long.

Thanx for all your excellent tips and advice!

Rich,

Hadn’t thought about recording the session. Another EXCELLENT suggestion!

Yes, that does help.

Just put mine together, thanks so much for sharing this ultra simple mount.

Took just a few minutes to assemble, and setup/takedown is also just a couple minutes.

Couldn’t be happier – unless, of course, you’ve got a computer-controlled AZ/EL solution for under $100!

Hi! Thank you very much for sharing this ultra simple mount. When I bought this antenna , I ordered at the same time this PVC Tee, and cannot figure how to install it on my tripod.

I came accross your video on you tube, and BINGO!!! it tooks a few minute to assemble and set-up.

Richard, you make my day, again a BIG THANK YOU & hope to work you one of these day on bands including satellite.
