The same company that makes our Buddipole™ tripod also makes this mast for us exactly to our specifications.
We then affix a custom machined adapter to thread seamlessly into the center tee of the Buddipole™. We wanted something that would collapse to 22″ and extend to 8 feet.
This mast fits perfectly inside a pocket in the nylon ‘packcloth’ carrying bag that comes with the Buddipole™. The antenna and mast can then be placed within the black thermoplastic case (provided with the Buddipole™) for traveling.
The mast is made from 6061 Aluminum and is anodized in black.
