It is exactly what I expected from the description given on the SOTABEAMS website. Very light weight and it feels very strong. It solves my need for a mast to support my portable experimental HF antenna. Will let you know more later, in Sept 2020, after having used it all summer.
Nice small mast that fits in my backpack for use with my PRC320. Light and seems pretty strong for it's size.
For some time I have been looking for a small mast I can pack down inside a rucksack. So when planning a few days walking and wild camping on Dartmoor, I decided to order the Mini Mast and was pleased to say it fitted nicely into my pack along with trx, tuner, battery and enough kit for three days out for me and my dog!
It worked perfectly and CW contacts were made on 30m in 9A,SQ and S57 from the tent in the evenings.
Good for what I need it for.
Brilliant very useful.
I used this to support my EFHW antenna inverted v style while on holiday in Malta ,it did the job very well indeed and collapsed down small enough to fit inside my cabin bag on the aircraft .
This is just right to take in a rucksack along with radio gear in the winter when so many things need to go in the bag. I activated a couple of 2000m mountains in Germany in January when the size and weight of the pole helped enormously
I'm using this as my mast for SOTA for all summits lacking vegetation. Supports an invert v with no problems and is super light.
This is an outstanding pole I'm using it to hold up a T2LT dipole in the garden using the top section of the pole. The pole is extremely light weight and packs down into a very small form factor making it easy to transport and deploy and pack away quickly. All the sections are solid and hold up extremely well in light to moderate wind when using the mini stake kit. The only disadvantage of this length is it may be slightly short for certain wire antennas but in turms of portability and for taking on holiday its a perfect compromise. Placing the order was quick and easy and the pole arived well packaged service was outstanding. Deffinatly a 5 star company product.
Bought this to use at the center of the SOTABeams Two Band (20-40m) Dipole. Topmost piece was too lightweight and the loop on the top of that piece quickly broke. Took that topmost piece, reversed it, shoved it fully down into the next piece, drilled a small hole at the top of that new reinforced top piece, and then added my own small wire loop there. Having done that, it works like a charm in a leaning, single guyed, position.
ideal for light-weight portable use with my 2m and 4 m home-brew j-poles. the separate light-weight stake supports the pole.
