[TowerTalk] Vendors for 1 3/4 inch mast material?

If you are going mount an HF beam antenna with 1 3/4" pipe you may have
problems getting the antenna to stay pointed in the same direction. Most
HF beams will work better with a 2" mast. That is not to say that an
antenna can't be attached to a smaller mast but they tend to slip in the
larger mounting hardware.

I have a Rohn top section which has an OD of 2 inches, so it will only
accept a 1 3/4 inch mast inside it.I've found vendors on the web for 2
mast, but none for 1 3/4 inch.

Does anyone out there have a link for the smaller diameter mast
