Can someone send me plans or an article for building a 5/8 wave vertical for 10 meters (FM)? Coil specs, and the length of the vertical radiator when using insulated 14 gauge wire would be preferable.

I've seen formulas to calculate same, but they want details like the velocity factor of the wire, and other things that I have no idea how to find.

Thanks

This 10M AM/SSB version using copper tubing may give you some ideas.
