A Quick, Simple, Inexpensive Trailer Hitch Antenna Mast. Post #1050.

A Quick, Simple, Inexpensive Trailer Hitch Antenna Mast (http://www.eham.net/articles/38039). Accessed on 21 February 2017, 21:35 hrs, UTC. Author:  Joe Tomasone (AB2M). Please click link or insert title URL into your browser search box to read the complete article. Comment: A nice, well-written, and richly photographed tutorial on building a sturdy, inexpensive trailer hitch antenna mast.  Just follow the suggestions outlined in this article and you should have little trouble attaching the hitch to your vehicle and supporting a lightweight antenna for portable operations. In the comment section of the article, KE4ZHH suggests using a telescoping fiberglass mast with the trailer hitch.  One could easily use the tip of the fiberglass mast to support an inverted vee antenna.  Either way, this article is a good example of what can be done with simple materials.
