|1. A mounting apparatus for attaching a mast to a fascia of any of a plurality of different structures at a desired orientation,
the mounting apparatus comprising:
a base support having a substantially planar face configured to mate with the fascia of one of the different structures for
rigid fixation thereto; and
a ball mount joined to the base support and configured to receive a ball associated with the mast, wherein the ball moves
within the ball mount to thereby allow the mast to move within a substantially cone-shaped region having a central axis that
is substantially normal to the substantially planar face of the base support so that the mast is positioned and maintained
at the desired orientation with respect to the fascia of the structure.
