Hi, Dick;

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.
