I'm trying to determine if I can use Rigid Electrical conduit for my 2.0 inch mast (3.5 ft length) to mount my MA5B YAGI on my rotor.
The specifications on 2.0 inch Rigid Electrical conduit do not list wall thickness, only that it is Rigid, galvanized, & ANSI C80.1.

2" is a reference for Rigid Wall Conduit, the actual size is 2-3/8" Outside Diameter and the nominal is 2-5/16" Inside Diameter making the Wall thickness slightly over 1/4". I'm not so sure that a Ham M Rotor has enough tolerence to slide a 2-3/8" pipe into it.
