DIY Motorized Antenna Mount for WeBoost Cellular Booster on a FC 2018

We purchased a WeBoost Drive Reach along with 3 foot trucker antenna to attach to the roof of an Airstream 2018 Flying Cloud. This is a DIY Build for a motorized mount that allows the antenna to be lowered and raised from inside the airstream. The mount has been full-time road tested for the last 8 months with no issues. The design, sourcing, build and testing took about 2 weeks. Hopefully this video video cuts the process to a day or so. The antenna and booster have been a life-saver for work many times, wouldn't leave home without it.

Correction: the antenna is at max length (used all attachments plus bracket described in video), final length was 4 not 3 feet. . The height helps to get better signal (esp if surrounded by tall objects) and essentially ensures you will never get Interference between outside and inside antennas.
