When I wanted a 3" mast (I just do not like 2") around five years ago no one sold them so I purchased 1026 DOM tubing from Ryerson and had it galvanized at Valmont in SC. There was some legwork needed but hanks to a company discount from the steel supplier and no shipping expenses it was surprisingly inexpensive. The 1026 mast is more than adequately strong for my monobanders.

It looks like DX Engineering cuts their 22' masts in half. I am not sure if there is a marked for shorter ones but if they cut them in thirds they could be shipped UPS.

That's interesting. DXE did not have the 11 foot version available last
spring when I rebuilt my antenna system. I ordered the 10 ft. Rohn mast
from Texas Towers, which was adequate for my needs. It also shipped with
the tower, so added little to shipping cost.

DX Engineering has several high quality masts.

11 feet and 22 feet long - Chrome-moly - hot dipped galvanized - pretty low truck shipping rates
