    I am looking into putting an antenna up on my roof, and was wondering what gauge metal conduit runs. Most of the masts I am seeing run 16 gauge and are about double the price of similar lengths of conduit.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    You may want to go with a Rigid Steel Conduit (RGS) if you are going outside with it. It comes threaded for easy assembly, is a much stronger guage conduit and will have a better life expectancy outdoors. It may cost a little more than EMT but is definitely a more rigid solution.
