Why would you want a telescoping mast? Why not a one-piece mast? Here are some advantages:
Shipping. Standard freight trucks handle a maximum length of any kind of pole, such as a flagpole or antenna mast. By shipping the mast in a telescoping configuration, it's possible to ship it by standard freight. This greatly lowers the cost and eliminates the sometimes long wait for a longer truck to be available.
In some cases, the owner or occupant needs to be able to change the antenna height. This arrangement makes that possible.
As with shipping standardization, there are other delivery-related benefits to standardized telescoping sections versus an array of fixed lengths. That translates into a smoother, more efficient project.
It makes installation much easier, eliminating the need for special gear. For a very tall mast, you would almost certainly need a crane to erect the mast. Try scheduling a crane sometime, and you'll appreciate the telescoping mast.

The National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, provides communications system installation requirements in Chapter 8. Other NEC Articles may also apply, especially those in Chapter 5. The IEEE provides many communications-related standards. If you go to the IEEE Website's Standards library and select "Communications" you will see these. It's a huge list, but only certain ones will apply to your specific application.
Some state and local authorities have additional state requirements. Check with the Authority Having Jurisdiction to determine which, if any, state and local requirements apply.
