I'm deploying an antenna on my residential rooftop for 2.4GHz wireless for a
community LAN and I was wondering the best way to get 20' high with no guy
wires. Currently I am using a 3ft tripod with a 1.5 OD 10' piece of heavy wall
conduit...very rigid and withstood a heck of a windstorm yesterday, but not
quite high enough. Loading is minimal with one radio and a 70" antenna on top.
What supports and materials would be best for this application. I was really
hoping there was a 20' mast I could use that would fit in my current roof
tripod that accepts 2"OD max.
If I have to, I could settle for 15'...
