Spiderbeam Spiderpole 22m “Long John”
22m fibreglass pole
This is the little brother of the incredible 26m pole. Removing the bottom two segments reduces height by 4m, but makes it a lot lighter and easier to install.
Like all Spiderbeams other poles, the "long john" 22m fibreglass pole is carefully designed to maintain low weight and perfect balance. It can still be installed by "walking up" the pole. As usual, Spiderbeam have tested it thoroughly at the Baltic sea coast where it has weathered all storms without any problems.
The pole starts out very rugged at the bottom (95mm diameter / 2mm wall thickness) and still has 45mm diameter / 1.7mm wall thickness at 13.5m height! The upper sections are slim and light (1mm wall thickness), preventing the pole from becoming top-heavy and keeping it perfectly balanced.
A special reinforcing winding technique - several layers of fibreglass are wound in alternating direction (criss/cross winding) - provides greatly increased lateral and linear strength.
These poles are perfect for building all kinds of wire antennas, especially 80/160m wire GP or inverted L antennas. They can also easily support temporary lightweight 1 Element Quad or Delta loops for 40-10m, and dipoles for all bands, especially when used with open wire feedline. (Most baluns would be somewhat heavy). 4-6 poles could be used to build lightweight beams for 40 or 80m The best (and cheapest) wire to use for building such wire antennas (verticals, loops, dipoles etc.) is AWG 18 (= 1mm diameter) enameled copper wire or similar.
For example a 20/15/10m 1el quad can be installed at 16m height above ground. The Spiderbeam vertical junction box / radial plate makes building wire verticals very easy.
