$10 eBay pole vs 31ft Jackite Mast

Howdy folks! In this video we compare the $10 QRP Antenna pole that we previously reviewed and the Jackite 31′ Fiberglass mast. They both have their uses, but which one is the clear winner? Or IS there a clear winner? Check out the video below, and let us know what you think!

    The $10 Ebay pole sounds like a good match for the new QRP Guys Portable Tri-Band Vertical kit :


    BTW a good trick to maximize usage of the pole length without damaging the end (often they crack just where the top section goes into the 2nd section) is to use a Fishing Snap Swivel and an appropriately sized and slightly modified ring terminal, as a means of securing a lightweight wire to the top of the pole. As a picture is worth 1000 words below is a link that explains how to do this :


    This solution can be used for lightweight doublets or light vertical wires.
