Try your yellow pages under steel suppliers, pipe/tube suppliers, etc.
You're looking for carbon steel tubing and not pipe so a plumbing supply house
won't know what you're talking about.
Companies like Tube Sales, etc. have offices all over the place
(Atlanta?). The psi rating is SAE 1027 or thereabouts. Texas Towers has some
masts. These are not inexpensive plus the freight for one piece of steel is
not insignificant either.
