A 5' difference in height can sometimes mean all the difference in the world between a poor signal and a good signal. Every installation is different.

My mast material of choice is 1-1/4" galvanized steel electrical conduit. It has an outside diameter of 1-1/2" and comes in 10' lengths.

It is possible for an antenna to shift in direction in a really bad storm, but if everything is securely tightened I have found them to be trouble free.
