Cheap prop/stand for WiSense nodes

I  have  been  looking for a cheap and easy way  to use WiSense nodes in the lab without having to put each node in an enclosures. I want to be able to quickly attach and remove the debugger on any node. The problem is keeping the bulky half-wave dipole antenna upright. The  antennas need to be propped up properly otherwise it will keep falling. This week I found a way to do it and  it doesn’t look too bad. All I need is a U  clamp and a long screw. Here are  some pics.



Here’s  a closer  look at the  sensor  node. You can see a  CC2D33S humidity + temperature sensor sticking out from the node.
