[amsat-bb] Source for 3" (76mm) pipe for dish mount?

I was fortunate enough to given a 100cm dish to play with but the mounting
bracket requires a 3" (76mm) pipe. I need about a 1 meter length.
The dish is a bit too heavy for me to use commonly available PVC pipe... I
have to wonder if there is an industry that I should be looking at to find
metal pipe of that diameter. Metal pipe is somewhat rare in the plumbing
world these days - I wonder if others have had luck with suppliers of fence
posts, signs, or some other industry.
Of course, if there is a place to buy pipes intended for dish installations,
all the better.
I'm just looking for something that I don't have to take out a bank loan to
purchase. Free is ok, too!
Appreciate any suggestions - I'm located in the U.S.
