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.
