    A friend K8DKO (long SK) used to make 6m halos for sale. The original company found out about it and tried to cause trouble (patent ?) till they found out he was small potatoes and left him alone.

    A 6m Big Wheel?

    I never even saw one of those. I remember the 2m BW (ABW-144 by Cushcraft) and even those were large.

    Did he homebrew a 3x bigger one?
