Hi Larry.  You didn't mention where your location is.  Are there any 
trees available??
They make great supports for dipoles and inverted v's.  I used a Radio 
Shack 30 foot push up mast for years before I got my tower up and I had a 
tri-bander and couple of dipoles on it.  They do work well. If you keep 
your eyes peeled, you can find some at garage sales or flea markets. Good 
luck on your antenna projects.
