With all the talk about tilting a Yagi 15 degrees above the horizon and 
using a rotor in azimuth only, I have a question. Since every Yagi I have 
includes mounting hardware to mount the antenna at a 90 degree angle to the 
mast, how do you tilt it 15 degrees? Do you put a bend in the mast pipe? 
Can you purchase hardware to allow the Yagi to tilt relative to the mast? 
Maybe everyone knows a simple answer but I will admit I do not. 

Thanks and 73,
