BRACKET INSTALLATION — One of the first none-roof satellite brack-
ets mounted by David Rhudy and David Corpler (from left) was on a
home In Clifton last winter. Since then, the bracket, designed by the two
men, is reaching out to the national marketplace, staff Photo By Dawd Anderson
used to mount a satellite below the
eaves of the roof.
“I borrowed one from him to use
on someone’s home here in Clifton,
who didn’t want any holes in their
roof, and decided that the idea was
a really good one, but that we
needed to build one out of stronger
material," Corpier said. I took the
design to Byfoni Machine and John
(Erickson) and Robert (Hoffmann)
came up with the design built out
of aircraft aluminum.”
Since then, Corpier and Rhudy
have kept the manufacture of the
unit “at home.” Corpier is proud
that all the parts of the unit come
from Bosque County, “We even pur-
chase the nuts and bolts we use

Housing Grant Approved
A replacement housing assis-
tance grant was approved by the
court for county residents Robert
Carl and Catherine Louise Locke.
The grant funds are being dis-
bursed from those obtained
through the Texas Department of
Housing and Community Affairs,
providing aid to several county
residents victimized by the May
2000 tornado at Lake Whitney.
The Lockes have purchased a
new manufactured dwelling priced
at $32,110. The grant, in the amount
of $11,812, pays the remainder af-

“We took a prototype to the Dish
Network office in Dallas and pre-
sented a forum on the unit. They
liked the idea so much that they or-
dered some to use and test for qual-
ity assurance,” said Copier. “Since
then, they have ordered several
hundred, and have introduced the
unit to the Dish Network in Den-
“When they told us that they felt
the unit might go to a national mar-
ket, I contacted Bill Stewart, the
president of Petra, a major supplier
for computer companies, and he
has since agreed to market the part
through his company,” said Corpier.
“He recently invited us to set up at
the National Satellite Convention to
be held at the Opryland Hotel in
Nashville, Aug. 1-5, where the

Corpier figures that the unit
takes at least 30 minutes off the in-
stallation time, is well as uses less
cable and is a neater installation

the holes already in it for ground-

know that when we start getting
more orders and larger orders we’ll
have to find some help, but we want
it to be local, we don’t want to turn
it over to an overseas manufac-
Corpier says that his primary
goal is to keep the bracket manu-
factured and marketed “at home.”
