As the title suggests, what's the best way to mount a CB dipole to an existing antenna mast.

Some thing like this picture, I cannot make out what is being used in this picture around the mounting point

Hi Simon,

Probably something similar to this bracket for sale on eBay.

73's

Graeme.

That would do it, ill need to find one that does 1.5” down to probably 1” for the horizontal as you can bet the dipole bar will be 1” MAXIMUM if not smaller.

I’m buying a dipole with not really knowing what I’m getting as the websites selling them have lousy pictures and all seem to vary in price but I don’t see the sense in spending much for a 1/4 dipole
