As you can see, the web site has undergone some much needed updating. Along with some changes in the types of portable antenna mounts that we sell there are some changes "under the hood" to allow those visiting our site with smartphones and iPads to view the site in a more uniform manner. Those of you using desktop/laptop computers should only see the normal sized web site with all the images at full scale. We made these changes realizing the many visitors that come to our site using devices other than desktop or laptop computers to view it.
Missouri State Highway Patrol
The Missouri State Highway Patrol has purchased one of our Tilt-N-Raise tilt-over antenna mounts for their highly specialized Rapid Response Vehicle pictured to the left. One can only guess the amount of electronics contained within this stunning black SUV. The size of this picture does not do justice to the vehicle or the wide array of antennas mounted upon the specially designed platform on the roof.
Photo Section Updated
We were able to get some pictures of the Tilt-N-Raise portable antenna mountt in action during Field Day 2011. Dave, W4DMH and his crew went out into the backwoods of West Virginia and put up the Tilt-N-Raise mount on their pickup truck and then hang all of their antennas off of it (more info here: W4DMH Field Day). Dave has very good reviews for the tilt-over antenna mount that he used and you are welcome to visit his web site titled "The Original Prepper Network". Dave and his group have some great. Dave has graciously allowed us to post some pictures of he and his merry group and the Tilt-N-Raise antenna mount in action: W4DMH pictures.

Tilt-N-Raise Jr.® Tilt Over Antenna Mount
This mount has been discontinued from our line up due to a lack of interest in a mount of this size. We do have a completed unit ready to go out the door at a discounted price of $149.95 plus shipping. Contact us at our contact page for more information on this tilt over mount. The new Tilt-N-Raise Jr.® tilt over antenna mount is made for portable operations that don't require a mount as large and heavily constructed Tilt-N-Raise po ratable antenna mount. The Tilt-N-Raise Jr.® portable antenna mount is for communications needs using a mast or antenna shaft of 1.5". This is not a cheaper version of our popular Tilt-N-Raise® tilt over mount. It is a new design geared towards those operators who don't require the brute strength of our Tilt-N-Raise®. This new mount will acc pet 1.5" masts or antenna shafts and is limited to a maximum height of 20 feet.<<Read more>>
Tilt-N-Raise™ Extender Tube
We are now producing an extender tube for those who need something to bolt their clamp on antenna base onto. These types of bases are found on most all of the commercially made verticals such as the AR-10, 4BTV, Gap antennas and so on. This powder coated 24" tube simply slips into the vertical support tube and then you can safely and securely clamp your antenna base to the extender tube. No hardware or clamps are supplied with the extender tube. The extender tube is available bundled with a portable antenna mount order or you can order it separately. If you order the extender tube with an antenna mount then you will save the shipping fee. <<Read more>>
The portable antenna mount that we produce is a niche market to say the least even considering the market we serve. However, we don't keep the portable antenna mounts we make in stock so you will have a brief waiting period once you place an order with us. Bear with us as we use several outside vendors for a couple phases and we are at the mercy of their scheduling. These outside vendors are used to insure you get the quality product that you are paying for. We do try to give realistic completion dates for the antenna mount that you order so that you get your mount as quickly as possible.
New Portable Antenna Product
We have added another portable antenna mount to our line, this one is the 2.000" mount but does not have the radial plate attached to the bottom. Price for this new version of our portable antenna mount is $249.95 and the picture below shows you what it looks like:
And you can order it or any other antenna mount here: portable antenna mount order page.
When you grab your 'bug out bag' (or box in the case of radio gear) with your communications gear in it and your computer gear be sure to take along a Tilt-N-Raise antenna mount to make putting up a portable antenna a snap. Keep your Tilt-N-Raise in the same spot as your bugout bag and be totally prepared for the next emergency. The Tilt-N-Raise antenna mount is a no tools required method of securing your antenna mast to your vehicle!
Quality Materials Used Throughout
This is a super heavy duty antenna mount, you won't find anything made out of stamped steel or thin wall tubing in our portable antenna mount. This a small piece of the aluminum stock that we use in our portable mounts. This picture alone should demonstrate the quality of the materials we use in the manufacturing process. Along with this flat stock 6061 aluminum we use 6061 for the 1.25" bar stock, 6063 aluminum for the 2.00" model and schedule 40 aluminum pipe for the vertical support tube. We do not use aluminum tubing as it has a thinner wall and lower strength than the 6061 schedule 40 pipe. You may find antenna mounts cheaper than the super heavy duty ones that we produce, but then you get what you pay for. <<Read more>>
