Hi people,

Not been around here for a while so I thought I'd pop by and pick some of your clever brains!!

I'm still using my Voyager GS for all my jobs but am starting to think I would like a mast also. I have done a little research and found a few places that sell masts that might be useful, a few which are very reasonably priced but I am not sure how well they will do the job and a few that are astro bucks and could be a little overkill!! Here for example : SMC Comms Their NX25 system fitted to a van comes in at over £6000!!

Then theres the complete opposite end of the scale which is only 40ft rather than 70ft and would need work to make it suitable for the job and there are still alot of questions like, how much it will carry what sort of wind it will operate in etc etc:

So, I was hoping any of you guys that are using or who have used masts could let me know abit about what you have experienced, what you found were the requirements, what worked well and what didn't etc, Then I can work out what I will need and whether or not it worth the outlay!!

Hi Lee

40ft will do you if it's only residential work.
Being in the UK you might be best to look for a second hand
15 Metre "Clark" mast.
They are made in the UK and there are likely a few around in the UK.

The Luksa is a nice looking rig and they are on the continent, dont know anyone who has one though.

Check this Wil-Burt mast

Can't get the link to work. Search for "air mast" on eBay.

The Wil-Burt mast
went to $456 last time around reserve not met.
Now it is re-listed
It's in Florida, its used, it weights 239#
I'd love it but I think they want a bunch of money for it. Plus they don't want to ship it

Oh, I agree. The picture looks like something he got off a Wil-Burt website. It doesn't say what's missing but I would guess it would be a project. But it is interesting.
