Solo mast erecting

I think the wind gods were against me on this day. I recently had a lovely evening with a few newly licensed amateurs, who asked a very simple question. How do you erect a radio mast for when you are on your own. Its something i never asked, and it was something i have perfected over a number of years.

So armed with the Go-Pro and log camera I visited my local park to try and demonstrate exactly how i erect the mast.

Of course, I never realised how windy it was, but i preserved and managed to record a quick video showing how i “get it up”

I hope the video is of use to you, and apologies about the audio.
