If it were me, I would stick it up there. But first I would ask Gerald at Texas 
Towers. That man knows more about aluminum up in the sky than anybody. I know 
this for a fact since I have seen his EME arrays.

  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.
