Tower Improvisation

If you don't have steel, maybe a post made from a tree will work ...

It’s not the sort of antenna installation a lot of radio engineers deal with, but in many corners of the world where it is too difficult or expensive or both to erect a tubular-steel structure, you make do with the best mast you can create … as a group in Sarayaku, Ecuador, did with this mast made from a tree and raised by hand.

The installation is from 2007 and holds two VHF and two HF antennas that the town uses to link with a satellite Internet connection.
