Easy Up EZ 9-16 9' Antenna Mast Pole Tube 1.25" OD x 108" Galvanized 16 AWG
Made in the USA!
This 9 Foot (108") by 1.25" OD 16 AWG flush end Antenna Mast tube is galvanized for weather for a sturdy, long life Antenna mast installation. This mast can be used with a swaged end mast of the same OD and AWG to extend another 5 foot by fitting the swaged end of that mast (EZ 9-16S or EZ 5-16S) into the open end of this mast tube. Manufacturers recommend that masts heights of 10 feet and higher be guyed or provided additional Support. Fits a Variety of Mounts for Flexibility In Antenna Mounting and Height Clearance.
Note: There's a Big difference between 18 AWG and 16 AWG when it comes to Antenna Masts. This 16 AWG Mast is thicker, hardier, stronger and weighs more with heavier Pre-Galvanization. When considering the longevity of your HDTV Off-Air TV Antenna, there's no substitute for the strength of this mast in effectively transfering the Wind Load from the Antenna to the Mount in preventing the mast from Folding over. The 18 AWG painted masts just don't hold up. Be Sure and afford yourself 2 feet minimum, up to 1/4 of the overall mast length between the two wall mounts you would utilize in your TV antenna Installation. The Torque applied from wind load through cantilever to these mounts can be significant. This is one reason we no longer offer the 18 AWG masts such as the Channel Master CM-1805 or Cm-1810.
