  I picked up an old kid's swing set at a yard sale for free last weekend (7 ft.high) then took the two A frame ends and through bolted at top with 90* leg spread then attached a large U bolt horizontally at top.I then cut down a tapered 30 ft.cedar 3 in. sapling secured with U bolt and put bottom in a 5 gal. bucket of Sakrete cement.I use this for one of my semi portable masts for my antenna experiments.
