I am thinking about whether this would be a good place to mount a Diamond X200A antenna. This is a cast iron vent pipe about 3" in diameter that extends from beneath the earth to about 30 ft above ground level and maybe two feet above the roof line, facing and with a clear view out over the San Francisco Bay. It is firmly attached to the house at multiple points and seems very strong. Would you have any reservations about using this as a mounting point for the antenna/mast?
