Different fibreglass poles for Amateur Radio
In this well-organized and easy-to-understand video from the "Ham Radio VLOG", we see how a variety of fiberglass poles can be used to support portable and emergency antennas.
Here are some observations from the video:
"Here I am trying to offer some insight into different types of fibreglass poles and maybe which is best for you. I also show an End Fed Half Wave (EFHW) antenna for 20Mtrs. As an addition I fired up the 991 to see what I could hear. Signal were coming in strong against a relatively low noise floor. Unfortunately the mic had developed a fault so TX was not possible. This turned out to be a faulty (dry joint) in the microphone. Rather than delete this or "doctor" the video I chose to leave it intact just to show that things do go wrong, irrelevant of age or experience or licence. I think the video covered the intended purpose. Very enjoyable couple of hours with my Indian visitor Sri who turned out to be a great cameraman and director."
