A few years ago I painted my pole and polar mount in black Hammerite paint, it's now almost impossible to finely adjust azimuth as the painted surfaces stick together, so I have to rotate the pole. I'm not saying it will be a problem for you but it's something to be aware of :)
I hope that will not happen and i really hope to not have to move the polar mount at this height before a very long time ! :)
Anyway i know this probleme .
i already found a solution, this is to use spray paint for the upper par.
The rest of the pole with a roll.

Is this to get the pole plumb or just to mount it to the concrete? If for adjustment use nyloc nuts, or additional plain nuts to help stop the nut from moving. I use extra nuts with a dab of thread lock on my pole.

The two wooden templates exactly copy the base of the king post and match all the holes exactly.
The feet are too heavy to use it directly as the template.
the threaded rods are therefore at the same time the reinforcing bars of the foundations and the fasteners.
I will definitely add some real concrete irons.
but I am not inventing anything here, it is exactly the system used for large antennas.

That how it looks like, what I made for my antenna. Did not dig deep though but wide.

Forgot to mention, that was for my 4.6m Andrew antenna.
What size are nuts and threaded rods?
Do you have a photo of that in the concrete?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

You can drop a lot of loose hardcore into that hole once the studding is inserted , to save a large amount of concrete pouring.

it's not great but it's my best ...
I'm running out of concrete as you can see.

No compromise with my foundation.
120 kilos of steel & 7 cubic meters of concrete poured from a truck. I can sleep tight at least. :)

with this sunny day I was able to install the base and the antenna and cables.
The template system worked really well.


IMG_7145 (Copier).JPG
IMG_7144 (Copier).JPG

My setting is 89.95 ° North / South and 90 ° East / West, not too bad

I finished the kingpost part with this insert.

IMG_7148 (Copier).JPG
IMG_7149 (Copier).JPG

Now the antenna

IMG_7150 (Copier).JPG
IMG_7158 (Copier).JPG

IMG_7153 (Copier).JPG

and now after 10 years without doing it and no more markings on the antenna, it is now necessary to align it ...
First thing the motor is too old and stuck, I will put a new one.
But not today ! :)
