Have you asked at the local Ham club?

Perhaps someone there is looking for an 18'
mast and will split the cost?

You didn't mention where you are. An ill-considered
past decision of the ARRL & FCC has rendered callsign
region designators meaningless.

One now has to say "k8wk in FL or TX or NY or IL" because
one may no longer anticipate that the "8" contains any
useful information.  Sigh.

I know, one may do a FCC/QRZ/other lookup but that is
an additional hassle and impossible when mobile/portable
unless one has a laptop with an embedded callsign database.

Anyhow.  More information may lead to better assistance
re. possible sources local to you.

Climbs gingerly down off soapbox and wanders off to
find some coffee ... :-)


Thanks! & 73, doc kd4e
