Folding the Motorized Antenna Mount at Highway Speeds

About a year ago, I’ve built a DIY motorized antenna mount (for two-way radio) from a spare stepper motor and controller. There are two design requirements in building motorized mounts: (1) it must be stable enough, even at high speeds and (2) it must be able to lower and raise the antenna even at high speeds.
