I'd like to try a 10 meter rotatable horizontal dipole made of aluminum tubing. Based on lack of product availablity, I'm wondering why nobody does this. Is a vertical that much better? I suspended a wire 10 meter dipole between chimney's and it worked well, and picked up very little noise like my antron-99 vertical. Seems I could use a mast to get more height above the chimneys if I had a half wave of aluminum tubing on top of it.
Have found only one company making such a thing. Considering making my own but not sure about the exact tubing and bracketing to keep it from drooping like an unkept mustache. I like 10 and 11 meters. Not too interested in a beam or 20 or 6 meters.

    k3zl: "I am installing a G5RV and wanted to know if there is a way to enhance prior to installation"....He asked the "Q" left, like 2 minutes later and has not been back :cool:
  • @ BJ radionut:
    I hope he did not ask that question on the "ZED" he would get vaporized...75% telling in some "polite way" are you going to put up a "REAL" antenna? The rest telling him that's the greatest antenna ever with my 7300o_O:coffee:
