Our pump up masts, winch up masts and push up masts are commonly used by amateur radio enthusiasts as they are easy to transport and deploy and are a cost effective solution. The portable masts can easily support a wide range of commonly used directional and Omni directional antennas such as the dipole, yagi, spider beam and other types of beam antenna. A firm favourite for amateur radio users is the yaesu rotator for directional antenna alignment. We produce a wide range of strong adapters to suit all types of antennas including a universal mast adapter to suit the entire range of yaesu rotators and other types or rotators
Search & Rescue
We actively support many of the worlds search and rescue teams and have donated mast equipment to numerous charitable ham radio organistaions such as Raynet, Leicestershire and Warwickshire search and rescue teams as well as the red cross and RNLI. If you are part of a ham radio charity please let us know and we will be happy to do what we can to help as we understand you give your time to helping people.
Total Mast Solutions have a huge range of masts to choose from, and users often opt for a telescopic mast to overcome planning permission issues as there is no visual impact when a mast is retracted and not in use. Many of our rapidly expanding customer base in this field prefer our portable range, as they are easily transported and rapidly deployed by a single person. Many of our systems do not require any form of planning consent. You can see a range of tripods and many other useful mast mounting systems in Accessories.
Another popular system is the super lightweight yet robust Hiperpod. Available as a stand-alone unit or full set of equipment including:
- Carry bag
- Stabilisation weight bag
- Magnetic spirit level
- Guying set with karabiner
- Ground stakes & mallet
- Quick-release head load adaptor (to suit any antenna up to 11kg)

Recommended masts to use for amateur radio
Each mast is constructed from 2mm anodised aluminium, which is very robust yet more lightweight than steel.
All our keyed masts are built by our expert craftsmen using the best quality materials. The tube wall thickness ranges from 3.5mm minimum to 6mm. This gives maximum strength and durability. They are fully anodised for protection even against the harshest of elements.
Our masts can be used inverted (downwards) by utilising a winch and guy ropes – usually while mounted on a QPOD or fixed to a structure. They have proved an invaluable tool within the offshore oil industry as they are used for underwater inspection and installation monitoring without the need for a diver entering a very dangerous environment.
We have a large range of mast accessories available for many different applications.
We have a variety of used and refurbished masts available. For more information click below or get in touch!
