A shopping trip for village wireless VoIP

We took a trip down to Home Depot, having only half of a design in mind for an antenna tower. We considered a couple of tripod-like scenarios and an H-shaped base, but in the end decided on a 2.4-meter steel pipe and three steel cables running from the top of the pipe down to super-heavy-duty tent stakes (angle iron). Not being a plumber, I was surprised to learn that steel pipe is sized by the inner diameter, but of course the antenna descriptions specify the minimum and maximum outer diameter for mounting.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
