I have an install where I need to mount a B5 integrated with the J pole to an old brick chimney (about 2’ square). The building is a historic building so the owners are not excited about drilling into any part of it to attach the mount.
I am looking at the possibility of using stainless strapping to attach the mount - similar to the way the old VHF TV antennas would be strapped to chimneys on houses.
Has anyone done this with a B5 or similar radio? This is going on a building in a town that does receive its fair share of wind. 30 to 40 MPH gusts are not uncommon throughout the year but this radio will have some protection from the building and the chimney.
If you have done this, where did you get the strapping and do you have any photos of the install or tips?
