The Jackite Thick Tip Fiberglass Antenna Poles (31 ft. Green)
These poles were designed with quality and price in mind. These were originally made for flying windsocks but Amateur Radio operators soon figured out they work great as poles for wire antennas while RVing!! We use one for our mobile ham shack! See photos below.
Why use this pole vs the competition? Because, Jackite changed the standard for fiberglass poles in three ways: 1) reinforced the butt section so it would not split 2) increased the wall thickness for less breakage, and most important 3) began to provide poles with a thicker tip.
The Jackite Fiberglass Poles are telescoping like an antenna. You extend the pole out and twist the sections together to the desired length. For a shorter length pole, do not extend all the pole’s sections. All fiberglass poles collapse to 46 inches.

With slight modification, the Jackite Thick Tip Fiberglass Antenna Pole will fit in our FlagPole Buddy Ladder Mount 2.0. All you have to do is temporarily take off the bottom plastic end cap that keeps the pole sections inside the largest section. After you’ve finished using the pole, simply collapse all the sections, and put the cap back on. No need to climb your ladder to install this antenna mast. Plus, if you install the ladder mount near the top of your ladder, you’ll most likely gain even more height for your antenna. That translates into further contacts!

The owner of Hitched4fun.com, Aaron M. Scullin K6AMS, personally uses his Jackite pole while RVing. On January 25th, Aaron won the long distance challenge using the digital mode FT-8 while at Quartzfest 2020. He made that contact 9,086 miles away using his Elecraft KX3, KXPA100 amplifier, SOTABEAMS two-band 20m/40m dipole antenna system (PDAS-200) mounted on his very own Jackite Thick Tip Fiberglass Antenna Pole. So fun!!
