If you're unable to view this video, please enter this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ry4r3ggIcqE.  Excellent instructional video on how to install an S9 Vertical Antenna.  The video captures the step-by-step process of assembling and using this popular vertical HF antenna.  The fiberglass mast is simple, sturdy, and portable.  Be sure to install a good radial ground system and use a 4:1 UNUN with your antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner").  A 7 type, 73 beads choke was used on the 50 ohm coaxial feed line.  The mast support was a galvanized water pipe bought at Home Depot.
