Default Antenna mont on rear Ladder

There is a antenna mount that goes on the rear ladder. It mounts on the ladder and the verticle antenna mast slips in and drops in place real quick and easy

If anyone know anything about this antenna mount, let me know at [email protected]

I did a quick internet search using the keywords rv ladder ham antenna mount and got several pertinent hits on the first page of hits. I didn't look any further. This one might be what you want, but you didn't really tell us much about what kind of antenna you want to mount, etc. http://www.dxstore.com/rv_ladder_antenna_mount.html

There are several that might do the job including one that is attached to a pair of Vice Grips but .. I'm not sure I'd want to use that one on an RV ladder

Any West Coast Mirror mount will work on an RV ladder (Common item at truck stops)

The ALPHA antenna, or dummy load depending on your point of view (i'm not impressed with mine) comes with a mount that can clamp onto the ladder.

You'll probably have to download the pic and blow it up a bit.

I mounted a section of heavy walled PVC pipe with 2 pieces of pressure treated wood, using a bunch of u-bolts. I can drop most any section of mast down in there, sometimes I'll put a 10' wood pole in there and hang a home made 3 band dipole from that.

Shown is my TW-1020. Propagation has been so dismal the last few years that I can't honestly say if I like that antenna or not.
