I am researching putting up a Hy-Gain TH3MK3 beam and CDE HAM-M rotor on my roof. I understand that there are heavy duty roof mount tripods available designed specifically for this job. I am looking for recommendations on a good sturdy one. Also any tips, tricks and suggestions on a good installation method so that there are no leaks and that the antenna stays installed during storms! Do I need guy-wires or are there stand-alone tripods? Any and all info is appreciated. Thank you...

Recommendation:  don't use a tripod.  Use a 4-leg tower such as one of these.  Follow their directions to the letter.

Do these towers mount on a pitched house roof? They look like they are for flat roofs only.
