Here's my latest DIY antenna build. It's a 6m horizontal Dipole. I got the plans out of the ARRL small antenna book. 56" of wire on each side. The wire is supported by the PVC Pipe (instead of insulators and guy rope. Then I attempted to camouflage it. We have a 6 meter repeater in the area about 30 miles from me, and many mountains between my rig and the repeater, and this thing works well. Can't wait for some Sporatic E. Even on the flat side I'm able to talk locally with good reports. Of course my Buddy gave me the report. Here's a couple of bad cell phone pictures of it.
