This is post 2372 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to "Tinker John" (W5CYF) for this useful antenna accessory. For around $25 and a few locally available materials, you can make a sturdy tilt mast base for your vertical antenna.

The homebrewed device will come in handy should a storm arise or nosey neighbors ask questions about that pole sticking up in your backyard. I've used a similar tilt over arrangement for my 80 meter vertical helix.  Out of sight out of mind.  Plus, the tilt over base reduces the chance of wind damage or lightning striking your vertical antenna.

Here are some of John's comments:

Using off the shelf material and hardware you can build a simple tilt base for your vertical antenna. EZ Project using hand tools and less than $25 in material.
