    If my record-keeping is up to snuff this will be your Project #0003629467545283736652A (conversion from #00036294675283736652).

    I can't wait to see what you start tackling when you get back to Iowa, Iceman.

    Oh, yeah, those Silcom telescoping masts are pretty cool, for sure. M2 or maybe it was Force 12 used to offer very similar 30-32 footers back in the 1990s that I was always lusting for. Not cheap back then, either but they are well-built and on the heavy side for one guy to haul around for portable use. I ended up with a 33' PortaPole round aluminum telescoping mast which I still have and use with a flagpole trailer hitch sometimes.

    Anyway, good to see those are available and if we put in an order for a couple dozen (for WSPRing Pines Gated Ham Community) we could probably get free shipping from the Ukraine or wherever they're made. Whaddya think?
