Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Amateur radio homemade antenna mast


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiADqGDBOZk. This is post #999 in a continuing series on "Simple Ham Radio Antennas."

In this video, "MrFaralon" show us a simple wooden and aluminum mast he built to support his Comet-15 tri-band (70 cm, 2 m, and 6 m) antenna.  The mast uses a tip up/tip down arrangement to raise and lower the antenna. The antenna is fed by 75-feet/22.86 meters of LMR-400 coaxial cable.  You may want some help in building and erecting this type of mast.  "MrFaralon" says this temporary mast survived some bad weather and wind before he took it down during a move to another home.
