    I have loaded up light poles, do same as a tower by shunt feeding..I use my old mfj tuner and large aligator clip .At Walmart. Drive up next to pole unscrew the access panel screw enough to get clip on it and tune for resonance..It is important to have a resonant wire for counterpoise or rf in truck makes for bad audio on ssb..gl and have fun..

    I wonder if it would be possible to energize the light pole using a large split ferrite going around the pole and transformer coupling?

    Do you own this light pole? If not, do you have the owner's permission to hang wires from the pole? If not to either, trespassing comes to mind..... You could be held responsible for any and ALL damage done to the pole (even if not caused by your wire).

    Consider alternatives....
