Labgear 29924LAB 3m Aerial Mast
Bought this one to replace 1 1/2" aluminium pole which swayed a bit in the wind when fitted with a smaller aerial so this replacement was ideal for the new larger aerial. The pole joint between the sections worried me a bit as it relies on the weight of the top section & aerial to keep it in, as I needed to fix a wind speed anemometer to the pole I used that fixing clamp to secure the sections together which will now allow me to sleep soundly on a windy night. I marked the reliability down to 4 as this is an unknown, though it looks sturdy & reliable enough, time will tell. The wall bracket was purchased 4 or 5 years ago & is still in very good condition. Took advantage of builders scaffold for access.

Screwfix to the rescue again
How difficult should it be to buy a TV aerial mast? Answer is - very in most DIY stores. Not Screwfix though. As always they had the exact item I needed, in stock and at a good price. Great quality too. Really sturdy and rock-solid once installed.

This pole is 2in thick so there is absolutely no movement. The join did seem a bit worrying at first but up on the roof it's fine and there has been no movement so i'm not worried about it now. Half the price than others i was looking at!
