Squid pole temporary repair

After cracking one of the sections of my 7 m squid pole on my last SOTA activation Mt Gillamatong, pulled it apart at home to have a look. One of the sections had a piece cracked off at the base, jamming the sliding action.

Will really need to replace it, however have the SOTA VK1 multiple activation of Mt Coree tomorrow, so needed to get something working for this. Pulled off the cracked piece and used duct tape to cover the hole.

The cracked piece underneath. I can now slide all the sections out to the full 7 m height, just need to watch out I don't pull out the broken piece too far...
