I was on a roof today where it would be good to get signal down into a tiny central courtyard... and there's another building where I'd like to get coverage over the edge of the roof down into bay windows on the side of the same building where the antenna would be located.

Does anyone have any suggestions for mounts that can effectively and safely extend directly outwards one to three feet over the edge of a building to give coverage down the side of the building. Typically, these situations have a little perimeter lip that might be 15 to 35 high and about a foot wide. The device and antenna could be very small and light, like a nanostation loco or a OM1P in an outdoor enclosure.

Thanks for any ideas!

In respect to the last of these, which seems best for my current purpose, I first mistakenly thought that I should get 1/2 inch threaded rod... and that was much too small; instead I then got at the Home Depot plumbing department a 30 inch length of so-called "1/2 pipe" (with an _interior_ diameter of at least 1/2 inch), for about $6 -- works well.
