Wright's Aerials

Rogues Gallery

Both aerials are cheap types. The lower aerial has the mast between the elements. The one and a quarter inch aluminium mast is too long. The installer decided not to bother fitting a new chimney bracket and fixing kit. Instead he re-used a very old one (despite the fact that the lashing wire is almost corroded through) but this gave him a problem. The old bracket had holes for 2” U bolts made from ¼” bar and he hadn’t got any. But what he did have was some old mast clamps, so these were pressed into service as makeshift U bolts. They have distorted the mast, creating a weak point.
