Group,

I am looking for a low profile roof mount tripod that is 1 foot in height or shorter and dont know who makes them or where to get them.

I am aware of the 3 foot and 5 foot versions but those are not what I want.

I do for a fact know that I can get a 1 foot tripod as I have seen them with my own eyes, I just dont know where to get them at.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks much

Doug

I've seen tabletop camera tripods that short, but I've never seen an antenna tripod that short.

If you saw them with your own eyes, why not stop next time you see one and ask where they got it?

:-)

Shortest "antenna" tripod I can buy is about 36" tall.

They do, however, make a rooftop mount for telescoping TV masts
that sticks up about that much with an adjustable angle to mount on
the peak of the roof.  It might work for a very short antenna, but
really is designed just to keep the base of the mast from sliding, with
the assumptions that the guy wires keep the mast upright.
