    I am looking for a Ham made simple adapter to be able use a 3/8-24 thread antenna mount on a standard photo tripod. The only one I have found is by Super Antenna and does way more than I need and its $59. Ideally it would be a simple aluminum plate threaded for the tripod locking screw with the antenna mount off to the side so I could use a Hamstick as a vertical. Maybe have it have an SO-239 on the other side.

    Thoughts?

    3/8-24 CB antenna mount, a piece of aluminum strap and a 1/4-20 nut. Total cost about $7.

    I was hoping someone already had built them but found the aluminum on Ebay and have the connectors. I got a piece long enough to put more just 3/8-24 receivers so I can use my BNC antennas too. Now I just have to get the tap to cut the threads to match the tripod screw.
