Our famous poles and a range of other products are available at SOTA Beams.
Just thought I'd drop you an email to let you know that the above pole you sold me at the Leicester show went into service 3 weeks ago in the form of an full size elevated ground plane with 4 drooping radials on 10 MHz. Since then I have worked over 50 Countries with it including a lot of new ones. It's the best 11 quid I have ever spent on an Antenna, its up on the apex of the house, and has survived without guys the recent high winds, it blows around a bit, but not alarmingly, and always returns to its vertical form.
I was initially concerned that the wire inside was going to rattle around as the aerial waved in wind, but I bought one of those canisters of expanding foam, and gave it a few squirts to hold the wire. It wasn't entirely successful, because the foam expanded faster than I had expected, and shot out the section of the aerial under pressure, covering me and the garage in gunge which is best removed after it has dried, which was a bit of a problem as it also landed in my hair.
My only disappointment is that I did not work all this DX on QRP, but had to use 100 Watts.

Please send me 5 more of your fantastic aerial supports. They have worked so well for me that I'm ordering another and four on behalf of my colleagues!

Bit late in getting round to this but thanks for the consignment. They are fantastic...just perfect for the job. Will be taking one with me to 9M2 in August for my IOTA trips. I have a 20-17-15m vertical made around one and its works a treat!
These poles are exactly what I need! Please could you send me another one?
