    Saw a yacht that had bright white lights mounted 1/2-3/4 the way up the 19’ VHF antenna masts. Can’t seem to find any source or information on them. I called Apollo in Lauderdale to no avail. Anybody familiar with these?

    Okay so I see lots of views but no responses. Full confession, the lights I’m looking for are the ones on My Seanna’s antenna masts of Below Decks, would that make a difference?

    Mounted on the stick?
    May look cool, may not be good for radio performance.

    You are right but my 19 footers are looks only. The 14’ are the working antennas.

    They are TV lights for the film crew to get night shots… not a marine light

    To funny. We watched the latest episode and it dawned on me that that is what they might be. They look kinda of cool. Thank you for the info!

    Yep, Missed this post..
    No, Don't watch that stuff.
    Was guessing on what lights could go on a stick.
    But I found that those LED strips are getting cheaper..
