People often ask me on Twitter how I mounted my 15 ele Diamond A-430S15 yagi antenna on my photo tripod. Well, it was quite simple. I have a normal photo tripod for photo cameras.

I already had one at home anyway. So I measured the boom of the 15 ele Diamond A-430S15 and sent the measurements (boom diameter 22mm) to Dragan, 4O4A. He then made me a drawing that I could easily print with my own 3D printer. Of course, this part does not fit universally. It depends on the mounting plate.

My mounting plate has the dimensions: my baseplate is 42x42mm and on top 34mmx34mm with thickness of 8mm.

With this 3D printed part you can now easily change the polarisation. This is often very important with IO-117 Greencube, as you can hardly receive anything if you have the wrong polarisation.

I removed the original handles and put in normal screws, otherwiese the handles would prevent the antenna from being turned.

A tip: The dimensions of the smaller 10 ele Diamond A-430S10 boom are identical.
