My antenna is supported by two masts, approx 50ft high.
One mast is two 25ft sections of aluminium. The lower 25ft is a thick-
walled pole. Raising and lowering is easy.
The other mast has a 20ft steel scaffold pole topped by several 5ft
sections of thin-walled and deliberately flexible pole. The weight of
the steel pole makes raising and lowering this mast a 2/3 person job.
I have searched the web for scaffolding and have found alumimium
poles for building work, but I get the impression that an enquiry for
just one or two poles will be laughed at. In any case, delivery costs
could be high.
I would prefer to replace the steel pole with one section (or perhaps
two) as it is supported by wall brackets, not guys, and there is a
large unsupported section above it. The attached image shows the
arrangement - the one I want to replace is the lower half of the
How should I go about finding a suitable pole at a reasonable price,
and getting it delivered?
