Aluminum Masts

Pic. by Spiderbeam.

 

Spiderbeam's Aluminum Masts were originally purpose-designed for supportng The Spiderbeam Yagi Antenna.  They are lightweight, have small transportation lengths, yet are sturdy enough for this purpose.

 

Of course they may also be used for supportiing other wire antennas, such as dipoles or loops.

 

In the meantime, because of their high quality and relatively low costs, these masts have also become popular in other non-ham industries.  

 

Spiderbeam also sells a wide selection of accessories for its Aluminum Masts, such as Tripods (actually Quadpods - with 4 legs), guy plates and other guying material.

Spiderpole

Spiderpole is the name of Spiderbeam's family of lightweight telescoping fiberglass poles. 

 

There are currently 3 versions of the Spiderpole:

  • 12m (40 ft.) 
  • 18m (60 ft.)
  • 26m (85 ft.). 

 

Clamp Sets: The 18 and 26m poles also include a stainless steel clamp set to prevent the segments from slipping into the lower segments.   Although the 12m pole does not require a clamp set for short term installations, for longer term installations it is better to us the optional clamp set.

 

Colors:  Spiderpoles are available in any color you like, as long as it's black.

 

Mounting Base:  Spiderbeam does not sell any type of mount for the base of these poles.  That's because people's needs are so diverse.  In many installations, no base is required.  You can simply strap the Spiderpole to a wooden stake or the nearest fencepost or tree.  I will show you another simple mounting solution.  See: Pole Base Mount
