|I'd start by calling your power company. Sometimes they sell used poles. You could also ask on Freecycle or look on Craig's List. Do you have a tree you could use as a mount? You could also mount it on an exterior house wall or shed.|

|@bhart90 I like Karen's ideas for mounting. Please consider any telephone or electric pole will have been heavily treated at one time. Although they usually only get rid of old poles, some of those chemicals could still be in the wood. Many blessings for the completion of all your projects.|
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.
