Hope you find some pics to work with. Here's where I'd start, FWIW.

K1CRA Radio Store - Categories Telescoping Masts

This guy has a great site.

TV Antenna Source Indoor/Outdoor TV Antennas - digital/HDTV


LAT/LON Station Search
Broadcast Television Station Search

Updated Maps of All Full-Service Digital Television Stations Authorized by the FCC

Winegard Company Television Antennas, HDTV, Satellite, Mobile, DTV, Portable

Channel Master

HAMS, The ARRL, and the rest tend to have long memories of unusual installations. I'd start with the manufacturers, Denny-D, and then ask around. Being a Texan I too appreciate the concern about wind.

As I also like having CB in both TV and TT, expect to have a cell amplifier/yagi, plus some other TX'ers/Rec'ers beyond AM/FM and satellite radio & TV, I'd want a plan from the beginning about wiring and interference.

Glad to see your interest in one of the high performance antennas.

Consider, also, that we used to see the 102" whips used as AM "longwire" antenna's way back when mounted on potbelly spring. With the VHF folded in front, and the 102" clipped down for travel it was always a sign of someone who'd done their homework and was looking forward to a nice camping trip with all the "modern" diversions.

(also makes a great CB antenna)

Too bad that clear channel radio is gone. I really enjoyed listening to stations from all over the Central US, from Chicago to New Orleans (even XERF) as a kid in Dallas on a 9-tube early 1930's Zenith, and about a 100' of antenna wire made into a loop. The corporate crooks ruined it all. But, there are still some AM stations in smaller, remote markets good to listen unto. Gayland Stephens hometown has one . . . and we were listening to a Cowboys game on WOAI-San Antonio, 200+ miles east one Sunday, returning from Corpus Christi to Beaumont; a surprise.

And a typical Silver Streak AM/FM factory install on port bow.

Thanks for all the info, Rednax, you are thorough and informative as usual!

We get WOAI clear as a bell here in Austin of course.

You seem to know a lot about radio-- you might be interested to know that my Dad was GM for KOKE radio here in Austin for many years back in the late 60s/70s. You might say he was "country, when country was uncool."
