Seemed comfortable with my fibreglass Spiderpole 12m in a 'Moderate Breeze' (Beaufort 4, 15mph) with no guying.

Very solid builded, looks good, works good, too heavy for SOTA but perfect for car based activities. Hild a 10m beam without further support.

Judging from the photos and dimensions, this doesn't seem like it would be enough to hold a 2.26 Kilogram fiberglass pole. Boy was I wrong. Once this is anchored by the car's tire, it is solid. Since the base of my pole was a little smaller than the vertical tube, I wrapped a cloth around the pole and slid it in. It made a nice sturdy fit with no stress on the fiberglass section. This is great for a quick set up in a local park or for testing new antennas in my driveway.

I have been searching for this for a while now, even designed my own, then found the identical thing I drew up offered by Sotabeam at a very reasonable price. Easy to use, it makes setting up my inverted V a snap wherever I go! I love it.
The Sotabeam Customer Service simply cannot be beat.

My Drive-on mast stand arrived today, it was very well packaged and the product well designed and finished. Now looking forward to using it. All I need is good band conditions.

I live only an hour away from sota beams and I was happy that collection was an option.
I have bought a few items from sota beams and the service is second to none.
I was made to feel welcome and had a look around the workshop.
The service I got was excellent and I would recommend this company and its products to all.

Well designed, strong yet light with a very high quality finish. The tube screws into the base making for easy storage and transportation. I used it today for the first time together with the Travel Mast and they make a great combination.
