Could I get way with water  pipe?
    I did like the tree mounting option. I've  installed a bunch of yagis 
including 2L 40M beams in trees and they work like  gangbusters. You might have 
problem with tree movement if you use a dish but  no problems with a yagi. 
    How about a roof mounted tower ala' GME with a  pipe mast sticking up to 
give you more height? 
    Using the aforementioned materials for a pipe  mast is kind of 
problematic. They'll need to be guyed before you get up too  high; you might as 
well go 
with a real tower.
