You ask a very pertinent question, especially for those who might use
irrigation pipe for portable antennas. The answer is no, aluminum
irrigation pipe is lightweight. I estimate that the 30', 3" pipe weighs
less than 30 lb. I can easily carry a 30' 2" pipe telescoped inside a
30' 3" pipe and I can erect the extended pair by myself, if the bottom
end is anchored by one of the bases that I put them on. This is not a
demonstration of my strength; I'm 74 years old and weigh about 145 lb.
