My towers are designed to work with a thrust bearing mounted on the top. I recommend the
Yaesu GS-065, which will handle up to a 2.5 inch diameter mast. You could also use the
Yaesu GS-050 thrust bearing, however this will only allow masts up to 2.0 inches OD.


I can ship either UPS or FedEx – your choice, however FedEx is slightly cheaper. To estimate your shipping cost, use the FedEx online Calculator. Use 49456 as the “From” ZIP code, and your ZIP code as the “To”. Use the weight from the pricing table and select “Dropoff”.
