“We are pleased to announce the new Bouvet series of telescopic masts, the ALU-3Y0J made from anodized aluminum and the GLV-3Y0J, made from galvanized steel.
Both masts are designed to support at 9m full height the antennas that will be used during the upcoming DX-pedition to Bouvet island on January 2023, in extreme wind loads (35m/sec – 125Km/hr).
The ALU-3Y0J has 4 sections from thick 4mm anodized aluminum and can support an antenna load of 25 Kg/1.2m2 at 9m operating height. It weighs only 30 Kg and it is 2.7m when closed.”
The GLV-3Y0J can support an antenna load of 14 Kg/0.7m2 at 8.9m operating height. It has also 4 sections, made from 1.8mm galvanized steel, its weight is 32 Kg and it is 2.7m when closed.
Both masts are equipped with inox wire ropes for elevation, galvanized hand winch & galvanized steel base. Masts are pre-assembled, so a single person can setup the mast within minutes, installing only the hand winch and the base. A security pin can be inserted at 4 different preset positions, to eliminate stress in wire rope & winch.
Optional accessories are:
Car wheel mounting base for portable installations, using your car’s tire as anchoring point.
Side-wall bracket for permanent installation
Ready to use quality guying ropes made by Mastrant.
