I don't have a drawing in a computer readable format (yet), but we've
ordered mounting pads for our new antennas that look like:

    o      Screw
    o      Screw
 ---+---   Base plate

The base plate is 6x10 cm, with 4 holes at the corners (approximately 0.75
cm away from each corner).  The mounting pad is 14 cm high.  One can
loosen the screws and adjust the pad for wall mounting, like

    o--o--| wall

You can also mount it to a pole with U-shaped brackets and nuts.

The antenna is 8 cm high, 14 cm diameter.

The standard cable has a special connector on one end, about 1.75 cm in
diameter.  The antenna cable can be extended with standard cat-5 cable.
