Most use a cross-arm to mount the antenna, even if the cross-arm is not 
rotatable in Elevation.  Then you can attach the antenna in any 
elevation desired, and mount both a 2m and 70cm antenna, one on either 
side of the rotor for balance.

I suppose bending the mast pipe would work too.  I hadn't thought of that.
