Re: "Pipe tower" mounting for G5500 stack...



I had a schedule 80 pipe 30 feet tall attached the basement cinder block
rising thru the back deck and attache to the eve
of my flat roof.and was 12 ft. above the roof.  It was supporting a
paraclipse 12' tvro dish for 12 years. This mount made it during several
storms with 130mph
wimds with no failures... I since sold the dish and now I am going to use it
for my 16X12 yagi EME array for 432 mhz. FYI
