"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:

Applications

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!

    10 metre sotapole

    Good quality. The friction lock on each pole section is more secure than some other teslecopic poles of a similar price.

    Telescopic Antenna Mast 10m

    Posted by Steve on 4th Jun 2018

    Fast delivery thank you, mast is solid with plenty of sections, only problem I had when unpacking it all fell out the bottom, so screwed back on the cap which was inside the packaging but I found any movement of the poles inside dislodged the bottom cap, the cap threads are not gripping to well but cured it with gaffa tape so no big deal, satisfied customer as usual from Sotabeams :-)

    I am really impressed with the SOTA pole I purchased!

    Posted by Richard Burgan on 8th May 2018

    I purchased a 7M SOTA pole to construct a VHF colinear antenna. I made a special request to have it shipped to Okinawa, Japan. Sotabeams made a believer out of me with superb customer support. The pole was delivered to my door in record time. The pole was exactly as described and I was able to assemble the antenna within it. The antenna has been up and has already experienced 35 knot winds with no problems. I will be adding two sets of guy lines in hopes that the antenna will stand up to our frequent typhoons. I plan to order more from Sotabeams in the near future.

    outstanding portable and semi-permanent pole

    Posted by Peter, GM0EUL on 14th Apr 2018

    I bought this at the end of last year as a light antenna support for portable use. I cable-tied it to a drain pipe at the side of my garage and used it as a support for one end of a "temporary" long wire for some playing on 80m. It stayed up outside, supporting my wire, all through the winter and the terrible wind, rain and snow blizzards of February and March. It stayed up with no attention and is still as good as new. I also used three sections of it duck-taped to a ladder as a support for testing a home-made hex-beam. It stood up to that abuse perfectly and still looks as good as new. I haven't used it portable yet but planning a road trip in May if not before. This is one of the best radio accessories I've got, I don't know how I managed without it and for £20 everybody should have at least one!

    Excellent Antenna Support

    Strong light support which worked well on Studland Beach. Looking forward to using it over the summer.

    SOTAPOLE 10m

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Mar 2018

    I've looked at the other reviews below and agree that this is/should be a great product. However my 10m pole failed the first time I used it!
    It was holding up a 5/8 vertical wire for 21MHz during the recent BERU contest.
    I only noticed the problem when I took the antenna down - one of the upper sections had split along its length. I'm not sure why, as there was no top load and only light winds.
    I've now cleaned the broken section and used superglue to fill the lines of the split. Not sure if this will work the next time I use it.

    Weather tested

    Posted by Cyril on 7th Mar 2018

    I am using the Sotapole as a home base antenna and have left it up throughout the bad weather to see if it would cope with the Orkney wind and weather. Plenty of snow, (which is unusual for Orkney) and quite mild winds, 40 MPH so far (which is also unusual). However the pole coped very well and I am quite confident to leave it up and order another one for portable use.
