Our 7m poles are perfect for lightweight portable radio operating. They represent the optimum balance between weight and height for applications where the poles must be carried to site. Longer poles are hard to manage in many conditions.

Note that we usually glue on the base cap of the 7m pole, as otherwise it tends to work loose and fall off. If this is a problem, please leave a note in the "Order Comments" box when checking out and we should be able to supply an unglued one.

Base caps on 10m poles are not glued. The top and base caps are push fit on the current 7m and 10m poles, but tend to stay on a bit better on the 10m poles.

Dimensions and weights approximate.  Poles may differ from the pictures in colour.

Dimensions and weights approximate. Poles may differ from the pictures in colour.

We sell replacement sections for the 10m SOTAPOLE here. We do not sell replacement sections for the 7m SOTAPOLE, sorry.


"Must-have" Accessories

Pole bags: protect your pole with a durable nylon storage bag.

We also supply guying kits and insulators for our poles. Click the links below for details:     


All our poles will support a lightweight longwire or dipole antenna with ease and are readily erected by one person. They will stand a moderate wind if properly erected. Each pole comes complete with a set of instructions and our suggestions on how they might be used.

Other Uses

These poles are also ideal as the top section for home-station vertical antennas.

A few people have purchased them for use as quad spreaders. People have also bought them to use as elements for lightweight HF yagis - six poles would make a near full-sized 3 element beam for 20/30m if attached to a suitable boom. Four poles could make a nice "Moxon Rectangle" antenna. One person bought four poles to use at the end of the elements of his 80m yagi!

    10m mast

    Posted by Ed Beer on 12th Jan 2021

    Wow this thing is immense, you don't appreciate how high 10 meters is until you put it up in the back garden, this is higher than my chimney ! Certainly the height I'm looking for, I stuck a vertical end fed on it and my noise floor has reduced dramatically.

    Exactly as described. Good strong construction and precisely what I needed to support antennae (plural I shall be using it in several situations). Good buffer in the end cap. Watch for it filling with rainwater if you don't seal the joints with tape and leave it up. Handy eye in the tip of the top section you may find useful. With proper care (cleaning and avoiding grit and impact) it feels strong enough to last for years. Recommend.

    Brilliant quality, very strong, nothing like the ordinary cheap fiber glass flag poles you get on ebay. Well worth the extra for superb quality

    10m Telescopic mast

    Posted by Damien on 23rd Aug 2019

    I purchased the 10m telescopic mast recently to make a 40m helical wound verticle for a recent summer camp I took part in.The mast worked a treat and stood firm with just a ground spike to keep it in check(no guys).
