Are you still looking for this device?
Saw a set up on the bullbar of a LC ute yesterday.
Basically made up of two mild steel U-shaped brackets such that the arms of one bracket fitted inside the arms of the other. The bottom bracket formed a normal U shape. The upper bracket formed an inverted U shape.
Now, the holes for the pivot bolt on the upper bracket were closer to the base of the U than on the other. This allowed for holes for a locking pin closer to the end of the arms of the U.
Tha antenna base was mounted on the base of the inverted upper bracket.
Simply by pulling the pin, the antenna could be laid back as far as the w/screen. The pin was then inserted to make sure it stayed laid back.
Hope this makes some sense.

Many thanks for that. I am still very interested in making something as it is a bit of a pain to take the aerial down all the time.

Yes Jon

Later I will draw what you have mentioned, and come up with the right stuff.

I love making my own bits and pieces.
