David [N5JRN]'s New ANTENNA

Some 9 o’clock net regulars wanted a picture posted on the PSRG repeater blog. Here it is:
It’s made from a 1/4” square nut brazed to the interior of a smaller (but still pretty large, about 1.5” outside diameter, inside diameter circumscribes the nut) washer, in turn that’s brazed to a really large washer (large enough that its outer diameter just about matches the diameter of the magnet on the mag mount).

The 1/4” thread mates with a standard tripod head. Tripod is an old beat-up one I found for $1 at the Rotary Auction and Rummage Sale last month.
