Check the Bottom of the mast,the tapered end.Take a hammer with you and bang it all the way up,you will be able to tell if it's rusted or not just by the sound..How long has it been up there..?sony said:When I go up there I will have to check inside of mast.

I would have thought I could hear the sea or the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.gewecke said:When you listen to the inside of your mast,let me know if you hear any old
radio signals still hanging around?
The only thing you should see in there might be some old squirrel poop,ha!
Sorry,couldn't help it!
I have a little surface rust on the grey mast I don't know yet if it is rusting from the inside out. Gold colored mast looks good but a closer inspection is warranted.rcvmo said:My 2 x 10' X 1-3/8" mast has been reinstalled on my present home 10 years ago. It was originally on my old house since the late 70's. They don't make metal like they used to. It's just now starting to rust through.
One thing I miss is having the height of a 2 story over the ranch. At least on the ranch I can dance and throw a party up there.
