Patented June 17, 1930 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE FRANK P. FOULKE, OF INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, ASSIGNOR OF FOR'IY-NINE PER CENT TO THOMAS E. GRINSLADE, OF INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA RADIO AERIAL BRACKET Application filed January 30, 1829. Serial No. 336,057.

The object of this invention is to provide a radio aerial support which will be cheap to manufacture, which may be quickly and easily clamped to an eave, window sill, 5 chimney or parapet of a private dwelling, or an apartment house Without injury to the building and which will be neat in appearance, durable, and removed as easily and quickly as it was installed.

I accomplish the above and other specific objects which will hereinafter appear, by the mechanism illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a side elevation of my invention assembled for use but not applied to a build: mg.

Fig. 2, is a view of the device of Fig. .1, looking at it from the right of that drawing.

Fig. 3, shows the device of Fig. 1, applied to a gable rof at the comb.

' Fig. 4, shows the device applied to the parapet of an apartment house; and

Fig. .5, illustrates tlie application to the cave of a sloping roof.

Like characters of reference indicate like parts in the several views of the drawing.

The body of the support comprises a post 6, having an arm 7 at one end referably at right angles, and a V -shaped aw 8 at the other end extending in the same direction. The structure is preferably formed out of channel iron or steel with the channel on the inner side.

The post 6, has a series of equidistant holes 18, here shown as four in number, to receive two bolts 9, 9, by which a. slotted arm 10, of a clamp-jaw 11, is bolted to the post 6. The extra holes are for adjustment of the jaw 11 on the post 6.

The post 6 also has a threaded hole for the attachment of the threaded end, ofa bolt 12 on the outer end of which is an insulator head 13.

The arm 7 has a threaded hole through which is screwed a threaded bolt 14 until it contacts the jaw 11 and by which bolt the jaw 8 may be moved to clamp the support between the two 'aws 8 and 11.

On the outer end 0 the bolt is a lead-in insulator head 15. The aerial 16 is fastened is clamped it is advisable to so move the insulator 15.

The inner end of the bolt 14 isipreferably conical and a conical depression is formed as a seat for it in the jaw 11. The slot in arm 10 and series of holes in post 6, afit'ord considerable adjustment for jaw 11, and the final tightening is by bolt 14.

The aw 8 is made V-shape so it will pass around gutters and copings and hook more securely into s pporting structures, some of which are illustrated 'in the drawing.

Having thus fully described my invention what I claim as new and wish to secure by Letters Patent is:

- 1. A radio aerial bracket comprising a body member having an arm at one end and a jaw at the other, a jaw member located between the arm and-jaw of the body member and adjustably secured to the body member, a threaded bolt screwing through the arm into contact with the adjustable jaw and an aerial insulatorattached to the outer end of the bolt.

2. A radio aerial bracket comprising a body member having a series of holes and havlng a lateral arm at one end and a lat eral jaw member onthe same side at the other end, and-a longitudinally slotted member, bolts passing through the slot 7 and through holes of the body member to ad- 'ustably secure the slotted member to the ody member, said slotted member having a lateral jaw parallel and cooperating wit the jaw of the body member, a threaded bolt screwing through the arm into contact with the adjustable jaw, and an aerial insulator attached to the outer end of the bolt.

3. A radio aerial bracket comprising a body member having an arm at one endand a V-shaped jaw at the other, a jaw member adjustably boltedto the body member between the arm and jaw of the body member, a lead-in insulator movably secured to the body member, a threaded bolt screwed through the arm into contact with the adjustable jaw and an aerial insulator attached to the outer end of the bolt.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.

FRANK P. FOULKE.
