Tripod and either mast (long or short) are available separately as well and can be used with any antenna. This will provide you with a very compact portable mast with 240 or 480 cm height. The mast has a 1/2′ NPT thread on top (cone shaped).
You will require the tripod article 11420.BPT and the short (article 11420.BM) or long (article 11420.BML) mast. Or both?

Note: In 2009 Buddipole modified the mast. The new mast (from mid 2009 on) is thicker and does not fit in the old tripod! Of course the tripods have been modified as well.
The currently sold bundles like Buddipole Deluxe include a new mast and a new, suitable tripod. But if you own an older tripod (before mid 2009) and want to buy a new mast, that will most likely not fit! Unfortunately we do not have a solution for this issue.
If you have an older mast (pre 2009) and want to buy a new tripod you need a reduction piece to accomodate the old mast in the new tripod. Unfortunately Buddipole does not offer such a reduction piece.
