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.
I bought this as an addition to my portable station specifcally for overseas trips. I needed a telescopic pole tharwould fit in my hold luggage, and this fitted the bill.
I used it to activate SV/AG-028 the day before yesterday and it strapped to my small backpack nicely. No waving about and catching on low branches, and very light.
I use this pole to hang my 2m Slim Jim. First time out I broke the second section down by hanging all the weight of the antenna on it. In the Shetlands I lost the insert at the top. However, it is still usable. Saying that I would certainly buy another one. Great piece of kit.
