Re: distributors of solid fiberglass crossbooms





I use a sold 12 foot fiberglass rod for elevation.
it is a 1.25".  but it was a bit narrow and will
somtimes slip at the M2 antenna brackts. The 550 rotor
held it fine.
I plan on replacing it with a 1.5 inche solid this
fall.

the 1.5 inch is part # 110051-01

it comes in 20 foot sizes.
