Abstract : An insulated mounting support is provided for installa tion near a feedpoint of a ladder line transmission line. A first plate of electrical insulator material has a face from which two bosses extend, and has opposing sides abutting the face from which first and second appendages extend. A second plate of electrical insulator material has two recesses in a face there to for mating engagement with the two bosses. The two bosses are maintained in a spaced apart relationship in correspondence with two cutouts provided in the transmission line. When the first plate and second plate are sandwiched about the transmission line near the feedpoint the two bosses extend through the two cutouts and engage the two recesses. In this way, tension in the transmission line is absorbed by the two bosses. In addition, the first and second appendages respectively coact with first and second conducting wires extending from the transmission line at the feedpoint. In this way, tension applied to the first and second appendages is absorbed in the first plate.
