Here's an interesting site on brackets with a bit of humour.

Mines not going on the house now 🤣

Remember to spread the load if attaching a honking big scaffold pole and antenna atop them, (place the brackets further apart). Put them too close together and it's like holding a broom handle at the tip with a thumb and finger....one good gust of wind or months maybe years of rattling around and those brackets will fail or even pull the brickwork from your house! Shocked
Oh this happened to me I mounted a cb antenna silver rod my then girlfriends place had the brackets what i thought was a good spacing but in reality too close together resulting in a death defying trip up a wet greasy wooden ladder in a gale to get the thing down, and i do not enjoy heights.
