Yeah, Radio Shack carries 5 and 10 foot
long 16 gauge steel swaged masts like this 5
footer for $23.99. OUCH!http://www.radioshack.com/search/index.jsp?kwCatId=&kw=antenna%20mast&origkw=antenna+mast&sr=1BUT....if you ASK the manager if they have any
of the "Old Style Masts" laying around, you might get lucky.
They ARE much thinner and lighter than the 16 gauge,
but they are PERFECT to stack up and use to hold up
the end of dipoles. (My use...) or support a VHF/UHF vertical
type like a Comet GP-9. You'll never support anything
heavy withthese, but wiresBut the best thing OF ALL?
I got THREE of these thin wall good quality
steel masts for ONLY $2.97 EACH plus tax!
So the next time you're ear a Radio Shack your
rarely or never go in.....go in and see if you can
pick up some inexpensive antenna supports.
