Lightweight spiderbeam on telescoping mast

If you're looking for a lightweight HF antenna for the upcoming ARRL Field Day (last full weekend of June), please consider this idea from Jonathan Charles.

Jonathan attached a spiderbeam to a telescoping mast in a fairly easy way and got good performance from the temporary antenna site.

Here are some comments from Jonathan:

How light can you make a spiderbeam and still make it work? This is my experiment to create a simple antenna and telescoping Mast at minimal cost for Amateur Radio Field Day.
