1. A mount for an antenna, comprising:
first and second generally C-shaped arms, each with upper and lower free ends;
equipment face mounting brackets mounted on the first and second arms;
lower and upper plates mounted to a post;
wherein the upper free ends of the first and second arms are mounted to the upper plate, and wherein the lower free ends of the first and second arms are mounted to the lower plate; and
wherein the first and second arms are fixed in an extended position relative to the upper plate via fasteners inserted through holes in the upper free ends of the arms and in the upper plate, and the first and second arms are fixed in the extended position relative to the lower plate via fasteners inserted through holes in the lower free ends of the arms and in the lower plate;
wherein the mounts between the upper free ends of the first and second arms and the upper plate and the mounts between the lower free ends of the first and second arms and the lower plate are pivotal mounts, such that, absent the fasteners, the first and second arms are movable between the extended position and a retracted position, the pivotal mounts and the holes defining a desired angle between the first and second arms in the extended position; and
wherein at least one of the upper and lower free ends of the first and second arms has a flattened section with raised edges sandwiching a recess, and wherein the fasteners are threaded fasteners having a head that is prevented from rotating when inserted into the recess between the raised edges.
