18 feet Ultra Heavy Duty Fiberglass Push-Up Mast MK-4-UHD
The MK-4 Series of masts (including the MK-4-UHD masts) are, by far, our most portable masts for many reasons. The masts are light weight and short enough, when fully collapsed, to manipulate the quik-clamps from the ground. This mast will get you above most obstacles to achieve maximum height, line-of-sight, maximum gain, and the best reception. Our masts are completely adjustable along the entire length of each tube. The MK-4 Series of masts are perfect for most portable applications.

Accessorize your mast for the greatest effectiveness
A tall structure such as our full-length model MK-8 or MK-6 series masts (including the UHD versions) MUST be guyed and kept under control with guys even while being erected and we recommend guying the MK-4 and MK-2 series mast when possible. NOTE: Do NOT use metal guy cables with this mast system! Metal cables are conductive and HEAVY and add significantly to the vertical loading of the mast. Enlist three friends, family, or neighbors (or 4, if you choose 4 point guying) to stand in the approximate locations of the guy anchor points, and to hold the guy ropes and “feed them out” as you extend the mast, all the while being certain that the mast stays vertical. We recommend guying at least two levels with three direction guys. The kit below comes with everything we offer to guy your mast effectively.
