Well my wife and girls are out of the country for a while visiting her family. I have hooks in the basement walls to hang my hammock for weekend naps and my oldest girl's bedsheet hammock during the week. But, the good TV is in my bed room so I figured a good project to keep me busy this weekend would be to make a stand for the bedroom since the Misses wouldn't appreciate hooks in the wall of the bedroom.
I had enough material to work with, but the space I had to work with was small. Too small for a TDS or TLS. What I really want to build is one of those with the surplus antenna poles... My bedroom is only 11 feet wide at the place to hang so this is what I came up with.
Basically this is just your typical stand with a tripod at each end and a ridge pole. The only difference is that 2 of the needed 6 poles are actually my walls. I thought that I might need some sort of anchor for the legs to keep them from sliding, but tests proved that is not needed. The carpet provides enough friction. The 2 poles on each end are connected with a hinge and the ridge pole is connected to the A frames with a bolt going through the A frame close to the top. The ridge pole has a hole in each end an amsteel doggone is larks headed to and then wrapped around the bolt and then a biner connects to the suspension.
Here are the pics. Let me know if you have any questions.
