The 'Tactical Mini' Compact ultra-portable 6 metre telescopic mast
B-grade - minor cosmetic defects (see photo for example), but otherwise exactly the same as the normal Tactical Mini masts.
- Small enough to fit in a rucksack
- Tall enough to support your antenna
- Light enough to hike up a mountain
- Strong enough to withstand nature's worst
Lightweight portable operators need something special to support their antennas. The Tactical Mini has been designed for exactly this role. In the most demanding conditions, the Tactical Mini will not let you down. The Tactical Mini is a great support for our popular Band Hopper 2 and Band Hopper 3 antennas (but is not recommended for the Band Hopper 4, which is best used with a longer pole due to its larger size). The Tactical Mini is perfect to support a ground-plane antenna for 20m, dipoles and end-fed halfwave antennas.
***SHIPPING***: Due to the size of this item, your order may be sent in separate shipments. Please contact us if you'd prefer your order to be shipped as one.

Mast sections hollow to the top

High impact foam shock absorber built into base.
The mast is made of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) = Fiberglass. This is an insulator with excellent RF properties (very low loss).
The packed length can be reduced to 54.2 cm by removing the top and bottom caps - useful in some airline carry-on bags. The maximum dimension for an airline carry-on bag is typically 56 x 35 x 22 cm.
Friction lock: pull each section firmly with a twisting motion for best lock. When erecting always start with the smallest section. When taking down always start with the largest section.
Mast sections may be removed by unscrewing the endcap at the bottom of the mast, pulling out the shock absorber and removing unwanted sections. Always replace the shock absorber before use.
We have noticed that some masts in the most recent batch we have received from our manufacturer have a few small paintwork defects (scratches or marks). These should not affect the structural integrity of the mast, just the visual appearance.
The Tactical Mini is a premium product so naturally we provide spares support:
- Replacement mast sections
- Spare screw-on base caps
