Regrettably, Allan VP9AD, has found it necessary to move into a
condominium in Bermuda, and has rented out his hilltop location. 
However, always the ham, he is interested in the possibility of
using a flagpole as a support for a temporary 20 meter dipole which
he would hoist for a sked, and then remove.  He's wondering if any of 
the group have any experience with flagpoles as either antenna 
supports, or as antenna radiators.  Is there an advantage to aluminum 
versus fiberglass poles if used as a support?  It's sort of a broad 
question, but perhaps somebody has some relevent experience or can 
provide some suggestions.

For now, replies should be made to me, and I'll forward them to 

Thanks in advance, folks.
