Can i use EMT????Electro metallic tubing designed for electrical use.
1/2 inch hollow seems ridgid especially vertical....
Thanks for any information.
Around me, the mom and pop hardware stores seem to carry it in different sizes.
I want to mention, if you are going vertical, do not use a metal mast, unless it is an end mount.
(I'll assume the antenna is going to be too big to do that anyway).
The mast will act like a 4th out of resonant element, and cut your gain in half.
Use schedule 80 PVC instead.
