Introduction: 20+ Foot Tall PVC Ham Radio Tower - Mast
I wanted to see if it was possible to build a 20 foot tall ham radio tower/mast to give my 2 meter J pole antenna more elevation. My goals were also to keep the project as cheap as possible. This PVC tower project cost less than $50.
PVC is not a great material to use for support masts due to UV breakdown. Because the parts were so cheap I figured I would give it a try anyhow. If it lasts a year or two that would be great; I'm not really expecting anything longer than that.
Thanks for taking a look.
