    how do i attach a antenna to a brick chimney?

    I have a antenna that needs to be mounted to a brick chimney. The antenna itself came with hard ware for it to be mounted to a pole the antenna needs to have the abilty to rotate by hand to get the best signal.

    Any suggestions? The local hardware store sells nothing to help. They stoped selling antenna hardware 6 months ago.

    Do you have a flat bracket so you can attach it to the chimney? You would need to get some cement screws to be able to drill into the chimney.

    couple rolls of tape worked for my friend... it didnt look good tho

    Get a metal pipe stick it in it, get some mounting tape (metal strip with holes) and screw the sucker in.

    If i used cement screws would that do any damage like cause the bricks to crack? I seen people use some type of bands before but dont know what they are called?
