Further to a post of mine some time ago an EO member very kindly offered to make one up for me (you must be kind to senior citz every now and then) which I accepted.

It arrived yesterday and is now fitted as shown in my Rig Pic

I had to make a few adjustments(a couple of old sockets added) as the ARB bullbar sits too low and the spring touched the engine hood. The unit is quite strong and stable and the aerial folds back to rest on the snorkle cowling.

It is a bracket that can let the aerial lie back if you need to A: park the truck in your garage, B: get in under low slung servo's, C: drive under low slung tree branches while out bush, without unscrewing whole aerial and removing it

Ya just bought back memories of me going down the Opera House underground carpark last year, taking out quite a few fluro's and even an Exit light. How embarrased was I. Lucky I found an occy strap for the trip out, which I found in my Sisters boot looking for a coathanger after I locked the keys in the car, but thats another story.

Nice, but I think it would look neater if you rotated the top bracket 180 degrees so it sat over the bottom one.

Yes, and the thing would be 500% stronger if the brackets were U section instead of L section.
Whoever made that floggle thingie had not observed an antenna whip around on a decent corrugated road ;-)

I reackon that will break off ,too much area to flex when the antennae flicks L to R , OK for city slickers... I had one of them fancy stainless steels from TJM and it started to crack between the antennae and the bull bar mount , ARB make a good strong mount but as you said it has to be raised up , just a minor problem eh.

Hmmm yes.

I will monitor the situation as to how well it fares flicking side to side. The good thing is that I can lay the aertial down and will probably suffer little or no diffrence in radio interference laying down on top og the snorkle cowling.

BTW no city slicker here lol
