    Something terribly amiss here: The "" website is a site currently advertising womens' wear. I have screen shots if anyone is interested. Looks like it may have recently been taken over per whois.

    Rolatube is waaaaay overpriced for the ham market except maybe for clubs or DXpeditions. 21' mast is over $1100. So it goes with niche products. Very cool, though.

    I was shocked as well at the price... maybe I'm comparing apples and oranges? I paid a bit over $200.00 at DX Engineering for a 47' telescoping fiberglas tower and it's been up and giving me wonderful service.... Martin - I am thinking Mrs. B won't be allowing this to appear on your charge card! However, if you do get one, please let us know how it works out for you.

    Their main market is the military, the land of $70 hammers and $250 toilet seats. Interesting technology, but like many I'm content with my old fashioned fiberglass push-up pole.
