Just a few snaps from my home base silver rod which I put up yesterday.

2 5 foot joining ally poles with the option to now add a third to the bottom and push it up more in a few weeks. 

Hammerite'd the T and K brackets, used a self tapper and a bit of Gorilla glue to join the ally poles securely.

Used a bungee to take the load off the mast while fixing it all up so i could keep both hands free. It then floats nicely inside its brackets without the need to hold it.  

Tested quickly last night before the pub - 
26MgHz SWR 1:1
28.5 MgHz SWR 1:1.4
27.5 MgHz SWR 1:1.2

Happy with that!

Have a little time lapse video of the install but it won't load on here.  Crying or Very sad

Cheers all

Great job mate,have had better luck than me with a silver rod!  I had a 5/8 wave which I couldn't get to swr and kept altering in bad weather. Changed it for a Thunderpole 1/2 wave and had no problems since. Must have had a faulty one ! Happy c.bing bud!

A friend of mine bought a cheap 'silver rod' a few years back from ebay, He had the same problems. Turned out to be a dodgy coil. He sent it back and I gave him my old Antron 99.
