    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.

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