Tilting My Hustler 6BTV Vertical

It takes some effort to tune this antenna properly, and the ability to tilt it is quite useful. The next three pictures show my poor (or stingy) man’s tilt option, based on a suggestion by my brother Bob, N3AU.

A 5/16″ drill bit creates a nice hole for a 1/4″ bolt. My bolt is slightly too long, but a few washers handle it.
Remove the u-bolts and tilt. Make sure your radials have the flexibility for the tilt.
Here’s the tilted antenna, waiting for me to adjust the 80m whip.
