Manpack

There are two standard SMC range of Manpack  Portable masts and vertical radiators, with heights of 5 metres and 7 metres. Manufactured with strength and portability in mind they break down to fit into a man-transportable pack only 1 metre long. The masts are easily erected by one man in less than 10 minutes on almost any terrain. They are supplied with all fittings and guys with colour coded terminations for 2 or 3 level, 4 point fixing.

The fibre-glass masts are designed for use as end poles for dipole antennas or as supports for VHF or UHF tactical antennas. They are able to carry a static head load of up to 13.6 kg.

Aluminium alloy masts have the same guying arrangements as the fibreglass types but in addition are fitted with a terminal on the bottom section which allows them to be used as a vertical radiator. We can be provide a polypropylene base insulator if required.

Both masts are finished in olive green drab. Stays are pre-stretched and are wound on carbon loaded ultraviolet resistant polypropelene formers which are also the guy tensioners. SMC manufacture alternative fibreglass and aluminium masts for varying heights and head-loads to order.
