Wind Gen Pole Repurposed for Radar.

Removed the old Air-X and would like to use the pole to mount a Garmin 18 Radar dome to the top. I am trying to find something off the self like this GS-7UPMTP GLOBAL SCAN RADAR MAST MOUNTS , but unable to find anything.

Even though the pole is 2", It should be more than adequate for a small radar as it has been holding the Air-X, and outboard crane for the past 20 years without issue (bolts changed and rebidded 2 years ago) I am being told that 3" is the min now...

Any help would be greatly appreciated, would rather not take it all down to have a plate welded.

We have one of each on our arch with only 1.5" tubes and the radar puts a lot less stress on it's pole. 3" seems way ovbd.

Might try Garhauer. Haven't needed to do it but they have said they will modify their gear to make it work on what I have. That wasn't radar mounts but they were talking remachining cars to fit my track. Nice people to deal with.
