We recently purchased the MK-8-HD to use for a wireless bridge antenna. This is an 18 inch square patch antenna that must maintain direction. When moderate winds are blowing, the poles tend to rotate a little throwing off the signal. I don’t want to break the clips by over tightening. Will it damage the integrity of the poles to drill a small hole thru the sections for an alignment pin to be inserted thru the sections to prevent rotation?
Drilling a small hole at the extended point just below the clamp, about a 3/32 inch is all it would take, would work great. It would prevent rotation and allow additional vertical support for guying pressures, etc…
