Check your "Yellow pages" for structural aluminum.
We have a supplier in Saginaw MI that has that kind of stuff  (I'd have to
dig to find their name now) and I'm sure there are others are located
around the country.  The price varies drastically with the alloy, size, and
wall thickness and whether it has to be seamless or not.  Seamless is far
more expensive and unless you plan on slipping another tube inside the first
it sounds as if you don't need it.

Good Luck,

I need to buy a 15 to 20 ft long section of aluminum mast. OD needs to be
1.75 to 2".   Does not have to be the strongest mast in the world as I plan
to put a 4 El. steppir just 2' up the mast above the thrust bearing and 10'
to 12' above that a rotatable dipole for 40 meters with is 2.5 SQ ft and 25
lbs. I live in upstate SC and have truck.

If you have such a mast for sale or know where I can find one please let me
