Ultra portable antenna tower for ham radio, cellular, camera etc. Post #603.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please enter this URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/mtIFMNd9RnA. This is an interesting portable amateur radio tower made from stainless steel.  According to Scott Whitney, the tower is light, portable, and about 34 feet/10.36 meters long.  The tower is collapsible and can be stored in your garage or vehicle for emergency or portable use. You may need a friend to help raise this tower, given its height.  Raising the tower with a beam antenna and rotor attached may present a few problems as well.  Nonetheless, this tower is a nice piece of engineering and appears to be well-made.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.
