In looking around my shop to see what "surplus" wire I have in enough length to use for a fan dipole, I have several hundred feet of RG58 on a spool that I picked up at a garage sale for a very minimal cost. I am thinking about using it for an 80/40/20 fan dipole. I would like opinions as I may be overlooking something. For instance, if I short the center conductor to the shield on both ends of the coax and also where each piece terminates into the center feeder point, that should make each length of coax just one long wire....correct ? So not dealing with impedance or shielding issues. Also, what about building/winding my "ugly balun" also out of RG advice.58 instead or Rg8 as most articles demonstrate. I would still use RG8 as the feeder from transmitter to balun. I know I might pick up a little more wind resistance and weight than just using 14 gauge stranded wire,. Thanks for your opinions and advice.
