Hi Rick,

Al's portable mast is made by Will-Burt. They make commercial/military masts. 
See: http://www.will-burt.com/

These are nice masts. They are used extensively in the broadcast industry for 
video microwave shots etc.

They aren't cheap! I have a TMD 8-30 and it was multiple thousands of dollars
