Hi Bob, W7LRD

If your 5 foot fiberglass is strong enought you can use it as a mast section
but a metal mast works equally well.
BTW fiberglass tubing is recommended to be used as a boom.

> Just a curious question. I know the insulated el. boom subject has been
beat to death. I happen to have five, 5 foot fiberglass boom sections. Is it
worthwhile using one for the mast?? I used a metal mast for years and it
"seemed" to work fine for me. Having a plethora of hardware for my satellite
antenna rebuild.
