Default HomeBrew beam antenna

Looking to build a Beam antenna, was wondering if anyone had ever used 102 whips to build a small homebrew beam antenna. any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

I'm sure someone, somewhere has done so. I'm also sure that it wouldn't be all that 'good' a thing to do, there are just too many other things that wouldn't weigh as much (just one aspect of it). Happen to have a few 102" whips laying around doing nothing? Then why not. They're going to be just a bit too short so figure some way to make them longer. Not an unreasonable way of doing it, just not the most practical in all cases.

formulamojo is an unknown quantity at this point

If he has a 102 laying around I'll take them off his hands.
