I have a couple of 12' robust metal poles at least 25 years old 40' apart. Cemented 3' into the ground with a pulley system on each pole. Robust and as good as new. bought them from metal merchants and were galvanised.
Meomye, have you a metal merchants locally? Get their advice but a hole drilled near the top for a pulley. Another for a fitment to wind the cord when raising and lowering line.
a clothes line is, for me, far better than a rotary thingie....unobtrusive (my poles are painted black and weathered beautifully)
