Hi Joe,

    Have your tried a steel house??  I know it sounds odd but I was
surprised to find very near me a place that specializes aircraft aluminum
but no reference to that in their business name.  They were located near one
of our industrial airports and do support a will-call window.  Texas Towers
was cheaper, but this is 5 minutes up the street.  May I suggest you modify
your search to one of your nearby regional airports and check out anything
with air frame or metals in the name...

Good luck and see you on 6M!

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 N4JBK.
