Rohn model H50 is their 5-section (10' sections) telescoping mast; it is carried by many distributors and resellers all over the country.

You might want to contact a few local to you to see who has it.

Max-Gain Systems has very good quality fiberglass masts available.I purchased a 50' mast and am very pleased with this product and the company support.Sturdy built items these are.A little high in price,but you won't see these waving at you in the wind or crumpled to the ground after a moderate windstorm.Read the product reviews on these masts.73.W7KB.

The rohn50 is, I think, out of production, had to buy the 5, I needed a few years ago thru an ace hardware store up here in the boondocks of ellenville N.Y. I have totally worn them out with various wire experiments and actually had two break at the top section due to ice/wind loading. Best towers for pulling up wire antennas but will still bend significantly, fiberglass is great for verticals or well supported inv vees, depends on what you are building now and in the future.

Nah, it's very much in production and I have no problem finding them locally.
