pics or it didn't happen... lol
Two inch schedule 40 Galvanized water pipe is what I used. Push up poles are only meant to be temporary in my mind. Check it out:
Look it up on QRZ.com under my Amateur Radio call sign W4KVW and you will see it is REAL. Anyone who knows me knows I have no need of lying to anyone since I will answer for them in the end and I have no desire for that for anyone or anything.
I bet it is far less expensive than Chrome Molly pipe which is recommended by many tower and antenna companies.
uhhhhhhhh its a joke and I just wanted to see some pics... LOL
Chromolly masts are great if you have a MONSTER system however for the VAST majority of users it is highly over rated. It's like using a D-9 dozer to landscape the front lawn. Most of those types will scream not to use any type of water pipe either as it is meant for internal pressure not bending moments. I used two inch black iron water pipe with a Wilson Shooting Star on a 22 foot length which was in turn mounted on another 22 foot length of four inch well casing and it was fully exposed to MANY noreasters and a couple hurricanes. No problems.
I believe I talked to you on QRZ.com and asked you about the drone used for the picture below.
You can see it there.
I believe you are correct.A friend took the picture from his drone. I no longer have that big Live Oak since three weeks ago. I am considering putting a 2nd tower up where those vertical antennas are behind my shed.
Tallman drug it over for all of us to see, thanks Tall. And Six, that's a damned so nice looking tower set up, shack an awl
Thanks I know I am blessed.On the CB Desk is a TRAM D201A, DAK MKX,& a BROWNING GOLDEN EAGLE MKIVA. I own over 100 CB Radios in my collection and currently 38 Astatic D-104 desk microphones and about 75 or more hand microphones of a large variety. I love radio and have since 1965 when my dad got me hooked just before I turned 5 years old.
have seen that collection of 104's you posted, and awl those radios, quite a collection.
Be careful when you fertilize your antenna farm. Some antenna mast spread by rhizomes and cannot be contained. You could end in the middle of an antenna forest.
Every dang time your posts pop up it is full of bs. Feel nauseous? You won't feel zinc poisoning until hours later, and you will have the worst flu symptoms imaginable. Literally feel like you might die, and people have. 5p has had that warning on the box for years, and there have been ZERO deaths directly attributed to inhalation of the smoke, although I'm sure it causes cancer in California.
And how many times have you been poisoned?
