Force 4525l

Crappy hose clamps I can cope with as a way of attaching a radio to a pole but IMHO there needs to be a separate mechanism for azimuth alignment. Fine alignment of a customer radio whilst tightening hose clamps is too tricky.

Yeah, hose clamps are junk. Look how close they were to getting it right - This is the 4525 bracket with the clamp/alignment plate from a force 200 or 450b radio. It boggles my mind that they didn’t just go with the same bracket as the other radios… It can be made to work with a small amount of grinding of the top hole on the 4525 bracket.
