Telescoping masts can do a great job if built well and used correctly.

Are you looking for a recommendation on what kind of mast to buy? Do you have a particular make/model in mind? Where will it be used?

No i do not have a brand or type as of yet,just wondered if this type of mast had any advantages or disadvantages over say the sectional type for outdoor use!

Tv Antennas and Reception

Here is a way to put the location of your antenna 'link' in the Help With Reception part of tvfool. Using your correct address and a antenna height of 30 feet , make a radar plot. And at the top of screen you will see the address bar , the address bar is what has the , http:// . Copy every thing in the address bar starting with http://. on paper , wright on the paper the ---->exact<---- information in the address bar using block letters and block numbers. . Now go to the previous 3 that you put in the 'help with reception' part of tvfool. Delete 2 of them using the advanced function button. Now in the remaining 'help with reception' you click on the blue circle with the 2 link chain and you will see this , http://____________________________________. <---- put the complete address. And click on the button to insert it in the box where you ask your questions and give your information.
