Default Hamstick Dipole with "L" antenna mod

I have had this Hamstick Dipole setup for sometime attached to a 19 ft pushup
Painters Pole and it has worked well for me while portable. I got to thinking
this morning about that Hamstick "L" antenna I had on my PedMobile last week
which seemed to do pretty good, especially that Indonesian DX QSO with my 5
watts. I wondered how I could attempt to make an "L" arrangement with this
dipole mount, and since I have several of the CB type Mirror Mounts, it works
that I can attach it to the dipole mount using longer bolts and some 1 inch
spacers. I havent tried it out yet, but suspect with good band conditions, it
wouldnt fare any less than the dipole setup. Here are 3 pictures I took this
morning of the mount.
