The conduit is about 33% thicker than the 18 gauge steel used in the TV masts...and the TV mast is certainly acceptable for most applications...I have a small VHF ham radio antenna mounted on top of two 10 ft sections of TV mast and have never had any issues with it. I have also seen many TV antennas mounted on a 21 ft length of 1-3/8" chain link fence top rail. Most of it is commonly 17 gauge steel.
