I got the plans down on how I want to make my beam. I am still deciding on either two or three-element. My question is: what material should I use? I am going to push max power coming out of an Ameritron AL-80B fed by an IC-7300. What size aluminum tubing should I use for the beam (square stock I assume) and for the elements? I see lots of folks making them for low powered applications with 22-14 gauge wire on a fishing pole. I want something more solid and one that will handle the power. I figure aluminum stock would be best but I am not opposed to fiber glass poles with wire as the elements. If I use aluminum stock I will probably use Texas Towers. Prices seem good. ETA: I am still not sure if it will be a full size (1/2 wavelength) or a mini. Something similar in size to a Mosely Mini 33 or 32.
