Check out Lowes< Home depot or any other hardware store in your area
and they should have what you are looking for in a good sturty push-up
mast....I would avoid Radio Schacks....Although most of their products
are decent their push-up leaves a lot to be desired......Put one up at
my XYL's school for her radio club and 2 days later it was laying
buckled over on the roof....Didn't have much wind load on it a small 6
meter beam and a dual band vertical.....Yes it was properly installed
...Set in the ground about 2 foot down double attached too the building
with the highest point about 12 feet up and guyed at 2 different
levels....Luckily I do a lot of bussiness with them and they gave me
credit for it....Also lucky it didn't tear up the new antennas to bad..
