[TowerTalk] Portable Tower Question

I am interested in building or buying a truly portable tower or guyed mast
assembly that would extend up to about 40 feet in height.

By "truly portable", I mean that one or two people ought to be able to lift
the thing out of the back of a pickup truck, carry it a few hundred feet,
set it on the ground, and have it up in less than 30 minutes, using just a
sledgehammer to drive in guy wire stakes & ground rods.

In my application, the weight and wind resistance of the antenna itself
would be negligible.

I don't want to re-invent the wheel; can anybody point me to design
information and/or to a commercial vendor?

Thanx in Advance,  john  W2GNI  ... jwallace AT karta DOT com
