I am planning on building a six meter dipole out of aluminum tubing. One thing I haven't found out is the spacing between the two halves of the dipole. Does it matter?

Not really. You do want to separate them far enough apart so that they don't short together in the wind.

Thanks Zack. I figured if it was very critical I would have read it somewhere.
