Some Examples of Attaching a Weather Station Mast to Structures
Some of these attachement obviously work better than others. We had no input into these other than suggesting a location. Generally we tried to pick sites that would be reasonably safe to work on (for us) plus had reasonable exposure to the weather.

This is how we suggested sites to the maintenance people. This one was attached with C-clamps or brackets.
This is a common method. These tracks and clamps are used by conduit installers I believe. Seems a flexible method.
Here's a larger diameter pipe used as a supporting collar with bolts welded on to attach to diagonal braces.
A square plate on a rod perpendicular to the pipe was welded on to the base here to allow the pipe to stand vertically in spite of the overhanging roof.
Angled base plaet, collar, braces of two different kinds. Very creative and secure here. There's a ten metre mast for an "official" weather station just behind the camera. It's anchored with a big square grid of pipes weighted with cement blocks and just sits on the roof.
