Building a cheap radio tower. Post 1846.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:

Here's a fairly simple and inexpensive tower/mast that you can build to support a lightweight VHF/UHF/HF antenna.  According to the video's producer, this mast was built using recycled materials.  The mast is supported by both a stiff ground rod and by two braces attached to the building.  Please notice the use a "drip loop" in the coaxial feed line to keep rain from penetrating the operating position.  The only thing I would add to this excellent set up is some form of lightning protection.
