I am new here and to the hobby as well (i will go for my foundation exam on 8th Nov).
Just a question to the UK guys please. I want to buy Diamond x-50 as my first base antenna.
I did some research on the net, checked pictures etc. It seems i will need a large pole to
mount on the side of the house (chimney is no go, mine and neighbor freeveiw antenna is
there). So i was wondering to do that, do i just go to Wikes/B&Q and buy some long pipe ?
Or i have to buy special mast ? What about the t-shaped brackets that hold the mast to
the bricks ? Are those standard or custom made ? Maybe sold as accessory for TV ariel
