Hi All

I think I recall seeing a comment about mast, tubing and pipe.

Back in my early days, we used extruded 6061-T6 in 2 inch diameter with 1/4 inch wall. Many of us sprung for the tubing and put as much os 20 feet of it out the top of the tower. It seemed to hold up and I don't remember anyone having any problem with it.

That being said, I'm planning to put a tower with some HF antennae and I found my old 24 foot 6061 mast in the barn. It's about 30 years old and isn't even corroded. You know what I'm planning to do, so let me hear why I SHOULDN'T use this. Especially after all the years of great track record from the locals in southwestern Ohio.
