I use a cheap Wal-Mart tripod. Took all the photographic assembly off it, until I was left with a round piece which fit quite well in a 1.5 inch pvc pipe. I then used a t junction, added a short arm, put a hole in it and the Arrow antenna goes in it from the middle, where it breaks down. Elevation is controlled by friction. You can get fancy and use a threaded fitting. Elevation is easier to control that way and the thing won't fall apart on you ever so often. The other side of the t junction is used to hang my rig for balance. Everything is secured to the structure, so if I drop something, it does not fall to the ground. Weight wise, it is still portable, not for backpacking, but park bench or field day definitely.
