    We are wanting to erect a HDTV antenna outside our home on a post similar to your trailer install.

    What is the name of the brackets you used to hold the pole? Where did you buy them? online? what kind and size is the pole? How did you ground it?

    If their Mommy named the brackets, she never told me--but they were simply what Radio Shack had on hand.  Same for the pole, which is one inch in diameter.  There are 2 sections of pipe, one 5-footer and one 10-footer, totalling 15 foot in height.  I grounded it by simply jamming the bottom section a few inches into the ground.  The pros will probably tell you that's inadequate and sell you on wiring it to an 8 foot grounding rod or something, but I figure if what we did wasn't going to work, most likely the system was going to get fried anyway.
