Why can't i buy this at the store.

Why can't i buy this at the store. Paying $55.00 Dollars for shipping is just to much.

About how many channels can we receive

Asked by: ricky

HDTV Antenna Pole

I need a pole for an HDTV antenna. The antenna is extremely lightweight. I would be anchoring the pole to the eve of my house at about the 15-20' height and it would also either be set in concrete or bolted to an existing concrete pad with a base plate. My question is: Would I still need guy wires with this arrangement?
Asked by: TobyJ
Yes. You'll still have 35 to 30 feet of mast extending above the eave of your house. In high winds it would be very unstable and would probably break.

How long is this telescoping mast

I Looked at all the questions and one person says it not as long as 50 foot, I need this verified because I need 50 foot not shorter.
Asked by: Heatwave1972
Mine is the 50 footer but its about 45' overall.. you have to make up for the overlapping sections.

Why is this listed as 50 foot? Its only 40 foot.

According to an email I received from Channel Master, this item is 40 foot fully extended not 50 foot.
Asked by: AntennaMan
Because you have to make up for the overlapping sections. My 50 footer comes out to about 45'.

Can you spin the antenna from the ground so it points other directions fairly easy? Any trouble with larger antennas catching too much wind?

Asked by: hut
YOU WOULD HAVE TO SPIN THE SECOND SECTION BECAUSE THE BOTTOM SHOULD PROBABLY STAY IN ONE PLACE. PROBABLY NEED A LADDER OR HAVE SOMETHING TALL YOUR STANDING ON NEXT TO THE FIRST SECTION.

How is this antenna mounted at the ground? Is a hole dug and concrete poured in or is there a mounting plate in the ground?

I have seen many examples of how this is done. I like the telescoping mast idea, but how does it go at the lower end? I'm not a rich man but I keep spending money on stuff only to find out it don't work!!! I'm wanting to get a HAM antenna up in the air.
Asked by: Dale
I installed several hundred of these in the late 60's and early 70's in Florida. After extending the lower section and leveling the mast, you can sink it 2 feet deep by twisting and putting weight on it. The wall bracket goes on at the eave of the house 9-10 feet up. I always drove an 8 foot ground rod next to the mast. I knew many installers who only used the mast as a ground with no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NOT a 50 foot antenna Despite Home Depot advertising this as a 50 foot antenna, it fully extends to only 39 feet 6 inches. It does seem quite sturdy, but just not the height I wanted and paid for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The screw clamps on this model are not near as heavy duty as other CM products that i have recieved in the past. I had to reinforce each unit to keep them from twistin in the wind. Also each one of the support wire holdings was bent - several of them not even usable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just as described I use this mast for a 30 ft tall vertical antenna on amateur radio. I have it extended all the way and guyed in two places in the middle of the back yard. Make sure it is straight and guy it if it stands alone. Working well !!
