6m portable yagi tripod

I have the upper 2 sections of a telescoping mast left over from another project, and a new surplus Bogen tripod. To fit the mast sections to my tripod, and had to turn a bushing adapter. Tonight I finished that part and tested the fit.



I will guy this setup when there is an antenna mounted. I’m hoping it will be sturdy enough to support my 10′ 6 meter yagi and my Arrow 4 element yagi at the same time.

    I lived in Fayette, Maine until I was about 22, when I moved to Florida (7 years), Alaska (6 months), California (3 years), and finally Fort Collins Colorado.

    Thank you for your posts. They are inspirational for my own projects.

    I did wonder. Your homepage had mentioned that you did live in Maine any more. (I think it was your homepage, it was whichever I visited before this). Where did you end up?
