The mast sections are made of aluminum and stored in the launcher during shipment. Sections
are removed by raising them one-by-one and lifting the lower end clear of its cap on the base
plate. The center mast section remains stored in the erection mechanism. Each mast section
adds 5 feet to the height of the mast for a total height of 35 feet. Mast sections are joined by a
snap lock arrangement and the reflector attachment assembly fits into the top mast section and
supports the antenna. Two men can erect the 35 foot antenna within 10 minutes. View A of
Figure 14 shows the mast sections stored around the launcher and View B illustrates the removal
of a mast section from its stored position.
