If you are going to spend the time to make a mounts for the antennas like that ... you might want to make sure they are at 90deg like the manual says.

Are you following me?

I have since changed the mounting for that very reason, but still using the same technique with the antenna tube. I just didn't have a more recent photo.

Good advice! I did this to mine after seeing it in another tread. The tubes were bent with some heat and the heat shrink tubing allows you to rotate the tubes to adjust the angle to 90 degrees. I forgot who's post it was, but it's clearly a great idea!
