Joe, UPS will ship 7.5 ft lengths but the carton is subject to their double 
 oversize charges. That basically means you pay as if the carton weighs 70  
You are correct in that the shipping charges exceed the material cost but  
it can be done.

I know  that I have tried this before here but I still don't have a fix. I 
need some  5/8 inch o.d aluminum tubing in the 7 1/2 foot lengths range. I 
cannot find it  anywhere in the northeast Florida/southeast Georgia area 
(which I find hard to  believe in the first place). Trying to get it shipped 
doesn't seem do able  because the shipping charges far exceed the cost of the 
aluminum ( ups wont  ship anything over 6 feet long). Does anyone have a 
suggestion? I want to fix  these  Telrex 6m624's to get them in the air before 
the summer season  gets here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Joe
