|I would like to try making a homebuilt 6 meter dipole. Most of the plans I see use an aluminum pole or rod as the dipole. I am having difficulty in finding one 6 ft long. My thought was to use wood, with a number 10 or 12 bare wire stapled to the wooden arms. Any thoughts, suggestions, comments would be appreciated. Thank you.
