I found what I believe to be a great solution for a portable antenna mast that can be used for EmComm purposes, field dayor even a temporary antenna deployment at home. This combo I purchased included poles for getting an antenna 32 ft. The tripod base is made from fiberglass poles and a tripod adapter.

I can use 3 legs for a simple tripod base and top-load the fiberglass poles or double stack 6 poles to raise the center point of the tripod higher and bottom feed the fiberglass poles. When bottom feeding, you will need poles that have the reinforced fiberglass collars that come with Portable ham radio antenna mast fiberglass poles removed to fit inside the middle of the tripod. The tripod can then be tied down or strapped down using Portable ham radio antenna mast. When using on pavement it can be weighed down using weights or sand bags.

In addition, I can use the guy plates placed between any of the 4 ft. I plan to guy it at the 16 ft. Also, there is a base stand at the bottom of the center pole section that can be anchored with stakes or weights to keep the tower stable and straight.

The inside diameter for the middle of the tripod is 1. The tripod weighs almost 5 lbs. I fashioned a top section for the mast out of PVC to Portable ham radio antenna mast either an HF wire antenna or my 2 meter roll-up j-pole.

There is also a vertical section that will allow me to attach a vertical antenna. To secure the top section to the center pole and keep it from moving around in the wind, I inserted a bolt with wing nut through the 4-way adapter and top section of pole. At the two ends of the horizontal sections I put eye hooks to suspend my antennas. I also put on the ends of the PVC pipe end caps to keep the moisture out of the inside of the poles and finished it off by painting the assembly a non-reflective camouflage color.

Set up and tear down takes only a few minutes and everything fits inside the carry bag making this antenna mast portable and simple to deploy. Instead, with guy ropes attached to the top section and anchors, stand up the first three or four sections and let the mast lean against 2 of the guys to hold it up. Then pick the mast up vertically Brittanya razavi nude tube keeping it leaning against the guy ropes and slip the next section Portable ham radio antenna mast underneath.

Set it back down while you grab the next section. Having assistants holding the guys to keep them tensioned while raising can be helpful, but with practice one person can do it. The one down-side I see with this Bisexual amateur home video antenna mast is that it needs to be deployed on level ground.

I am investigating a method to shim up one or two legs of the base to allow for a level placement on uneven ground. Your email address will not be published. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
