I'm trying to connect to Irene Highsite from doringkloof, unfortunately a 3m pole isn't high enough to get past my neighbors trees.
Does anyone know what is the limit in height for an aluminum pole before rigidity becomes an issue?
I'm looking at cementing a 5m steel pole and mounting about a 10m aluminium pole to that.

You might just have to use guide wires to keep pole from moving in the wind, and ground it as it might become a lightning conductor Razz

I'm going to secure it with nylon rope at 3 points and put lightning protection on the routerboard and the poe box.
