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.
Try locating a fencing contractor, they usually have 20' lengths of conduit that would be acceptable for a small antenna.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
