Is there an extension that can be added between the original 8 to 10 inch mount and sensor?

I have the 5 and 1 mounted on the eve of my roof with the stock mounting bracket. Working great. But curious if there is an extender to elevate sensor about 2 to 4 ft higher. But I want to use the current mount. Is there an extension that can be added between the original 8 to 10 inch mount and sensor?

You can jam the swagged end of a standard TV antenna mast section into the ADAPTER (ignore the use of the screw mounts)
Note: it must be swagged like this oneĀ  https://www.amazon.com/CHANNEL-MASTER-Antenna-Steel-CM-1805/dp/B000SONAJ6/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&a...

The alternate is to find U-bolts that are wide enough to go thru the flange (so you can access the nuts), and clamp to any pipe.

Note Acurite states 3/4" galvanized pipe will fit the adapter, just keep it from flopping (I don't trust a right angle (El) to Flange, mount
