Hi All - Could someone point me to a source for antenna mast? It needs to be strong enough for my A4S and 10-element 2m beam. I was thinking 10' in height, is that too much? I've not had an actual be

I bought a 10-footer once from Texas Towers. They cut 1 foot off to make it UPS shippable. That was a long time ago though. Dave Hachadorian, K6LL Yuma, AZ Hi All - Could someone point me to a source

For a source it looks like you have one right in your town: https://www.centervilleiron.com/new-metal That said, IMHO 10' sticking out of a HAMM or equivalent is too much. Put it inside the tower dow

The problem with most sources is that shipping is the killer. As someone said, under a certain length (108 inches aka 9ft) it can go UPS, over, you are looking at truck. What we call CrMo DOM mast is

Relatively speaking, this is a pretty small load - even at high wind speeds - so IMO just about anything will work; e.g. water pipe, Schedule 40 or 80 conduit. Available from lots of different s

For a small Cushcraft tribander and 2m beam a 3" 4130 mast may be a little overkill:) 1026 DOM is a very good mast material, not all masts need to be chrome molly. Even aluminum can work well and i

I think all the talk about big stacks skews the thinking of us who have modest goals. I expect EMT or water pipe will meet your needs. It's a good chance to learn to use one of the mast calculators.
