Nice pictures Steve. I would think that those filament would help keep the 
snow off of the house;>)

Very cool!  My approach for my Gates BC-1T was to put it on two moving
dollies from Harbor Freight.  They fit the base of the transmitter
admirably.  Not as low as your design, but no assembly required and
only about $30 total. - grin-

You can see them being used to move the transmitter through the house,
then as the maintenance base in the photos at

You can see the dollies most clearly in their final position in this
picture:

Looks great Al.  Mine's still "in the queue"...like a lot of other
projects!


If you're looking for a way to move that 1300 pounds around, take a
look
at my low-profile mobile base:
