I am trying to mount some high speed backhauls (Orthogons) to a pole that is just slightly too large for the stock mount to accomodate. Does anyone have a robust, economical, solution to mounting these radios on larger poles?
Is this on a tower or a highrise?
This is going on a highrise.
Crossover plates or antenna mounts.
Find a mount that will fit the large pipe, use the appropriate clamp to attach a a pipe mount that your radio will fit. Strap the radio to the smaller pipe and then that assembly to your larger pipe.

Electrocomm or any other tower supply place should carry the same items.
EDIT: the price is not cheap, because the mounting hardware are 100% quality. Very thick galvanizing, top notch steel materials. Size the mount right and the right size clamps, and you wont have it snap during a wind storm. The stuff wont rust either.
Be sure to use schedule-40 galv pipe for your smaller pipe that you’ll mount the radio to, so it does not bend or rust to pieces.
