I'm feeling a bit foolish in asking, but: how does one elevate a store-bought vertical? Do you buy a length of 2" OD pipe that is 10' long, dig a 4' deep hole and fill with concrete? I read all about how people elevate their antennas so as to get elevated radials, but I'm not sure how they do it--are they all using a tower section (along with typical tower install, base and all)? I have some tall trees but I've yet to snag a branch more than 40' up, and then the antenna winds up hugging the tree (in case I wanted to make a wire antenna). I was trying to get an antenna out in my woodlot but I gave up. I have a small open spot where I could do something, I think I can get away with radials sloping down and guys and whatnot, but I'm at a loss as to how to "get up there". No end to articles about ground mount verticals... which I used to have and would be fine with (have a 6BTV that is itching to go back up).
