Lets not get carried away, 4-5 feet of 1.5" (1.9 OD) water pipe is fine for
your antenna...Works for many 40 meter beams 10' above the tribander...
Please don't use Sch 40 water pipe even for a VHF antenna. Exposing 4 or
more feet increases the chance of it bending in the wind. Water pipe
strength is a flow inside not outside wind strength.
