Tilt Over Antenna Mounts
In regards to the portable tilt-over mounts there have been some changes made as well. The only portable antenna for sale at this time is the 2″ Tilt-Over Portable Antenna Mount. There are several others but they are not quite ready for sale at this time.
Due to our move to a more rural part of the state we are located a long way from any powdercoating companies. We had to make a rather difficult decision about continuing the use of the coating. For now powdercoating has been removed as the base coating due to the pricing of the ‘local’ company located and hour away plus they are not open to color other than black and white. It isn’t that they won’t change colors, it’s the prices they charge for doing so. So now we will be coating the mounts with Rustoleum brand paint with a good selection of colors for those desiring them. There’s no extra charge for the colors, just pick one of your liking on the order page. Here’s a peek of the colors available:

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.
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>>
