Often the most difficult and somewhat dangerous tasks of erecting a HF vertical antenna is placing the mast correctly, securing the guy lines, and maintaining stability of the mast until you're ready to test your new antenna.

In this video by "ColdestMoon", we see an efficient, quick, and safe method of erecting a vertical antenna mast using a telescoping fiberglass pole, a few lawn anchors, and three strategically placed guy lines.  Don't be afraid to ask for help if your project needs an extra hand.
