    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 sources.

    These are pipes and not tubing so they have a slightly smaller OD - 1.9 
inches - so you might have to shim it slightly in a Hy-Gain rotator but 
shouldn't be a problem with other ones.

    Cheap and easy works for me.
