ADDITIONAL USES FOR PUSH-UP MASTS
One of our users has made an excellent YouTube video, illustrating components and partial assembly of one of our mast systems. Check out this video for good ideas and illustrations of the ease of preparation!
These photos show the standard-duty MK-8 masts being used in temporary wire antenna support use in zone 2 (in far Northeastern Canada) by contesting team VE2DXY, WAY up north. (Our masts are in use worldwide, and have been used from the Antarctic to the hottest of deserts.) Multiple masts were used to support full wave delta loops on 40, 80, and 10 meter amateur radio bands, and also a Vee beam on 20 meters, all with excellent results. (In some very cold temperatures…. note the low position of the sun this far North.) Photos credit: KD3TB, Irwin Darack A link to the group's website is here: http://www.wix.com/andyvavra/VE2DXY

“The fiberglass poles for Zone 2 arrived today and they are fantastic! They make the poles we used last year look like toys. Kudos to Ken for finding Max-Gain!”
