shure markets their own antenna stand s15a goes about 13 ish feet up solid base ... usually just throw 1 sandbag on it ... for something more heavy duty could look at the afore mentioned matthews stands ... search combo stand they are a lighting stand you will need to fashion some kind of spud adapter their maybe something existing not sure
I own a couple of the Shure s15A, fully extended they are a little too unsteady for my tastes. The clutches from mast section to mast section are finicky and sometimes slip.   I use them for a special mic placement,  they might be ok with a 1/2 wave antenna, but anything heavier or with a large wind profile, I think I would pass.  I am already looking to replace them with the Manfrotto.

I own a 3 pack of the Manfrotto stands that Henry mentioned. They clip together and fit in a bag(not included) for transport. They get the height I need when it is required, light weight and solid as can be with a sand bag at the base.  It has a single mic thread at the top so I typically clamp to the pole if I want more than one antennae per stand.  Iíve seen the Shure stands at a music festival recently with one of the bands and it didnít seem like it was nearly as solid.
