Cheap Tilt-Over Vertical Antenna for Ham Radio


Here's a useful accessory for radio amateurs using vertical HF antennas--a cheap tilt-over mast.

Callum (M0MCX) takes us through the design, building, installation, and testing of this project for those of us who need to disguise our antennas or to protect our verticals from thunderstorms or other foul weather.

Just raise and lower the mast to fit your operating schedule.

Here are some comments from Callum (M0MCX):

I finished the project! Fantastic way of tilting over my vertical antennas. I will review this again in a few weeks to see what I learned - watch out for that video.
