I was able to get together with Chris, N6WM at his place today. After seeing his shack, much like mine relegated to the garage, he showed me the mast. It is Rohn and extends to about 20′, which is high enough for the hex beam. The only problems I have are first, mounting the past to my 4×4 post. Currently I have my tilt base rigged up and bolted to the 4×4. I slid the mast over this and then guyed the mast.
Unfortunately, there are more issues up at the top of the mast. How do I attach a 1 3/8″OD center post (on the hex beam) to a 1 1/4″ OD mast? Again, I rigged something up, just for SS CW this weekend because I am running out of time. The setup is secure, but I need to do a better job. Currently the mast is only about 15′ high. Just a few feet higher than it previously was. I have posed this question to the Hex Beam Yahoo Group and hopefully someone has an idea on how to accomplish this.
Regardless the mast is mounted and I should have a good time in SS CW this weekend. With any luck I can add a few more 33′ radials for the SteppIR BigIR tomorrow, just for 40m.
