See my article & method for a very simple cheap portable ARROW mount with a novel EL quasi-rotor - using arm-strong retaining simplicity, cheap and easy but still keeping it portable.

The reason most people moUnt on the end of an arrow antenna is probably
because there is a threaded screw hole at the end made for camera tripods.
There isn't one in the middle.
Fwiw, some people don't use mounts like me.
On the AMSAT NA Facebook group someone said neither armstrong or mount is
better than the other, it depends on what suits the user.
I thought that was well said and agree.
