Solo antenna mast erecting - Ham Radio know how.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T10k1NIJO2A. This is post 2120 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to "ColdestMoon" for this simple and safe way to erect a fiberglass mast.

Here's what he says about the mast erecting procedure:

"I show how easy it is to erect a mast suitable for ham radio antennas on your own using only 3 guy lines and a fibreglass pole. Its a bit windy, and apologies for the audio quality."

Once you get the three guy wires set and anchored, all you have to do is "walk up" the mast and adjust the guy wires.

It would probably be a good idea to have one of your fellow radio amateurs help you erect the mast. As the video shows, strong gusty winds can complicate the process.
