Hey all. Here's a few shots of my homemade vertical dipole. Materials: 12' 1-1/2" PVC sch.40 10' 1-1/2" PVC sch.40 8' 1-1/2" PVC sch.40 8' 3/4" PVC sch.40 1-1/2" PVC tee 1-1/2" - 3/4" reducer x2 3/4" PVC cap x2 103" 12ga. Solid copper wire x2 3' 2" ABS Coax from Cobra HG A1500 mag mount or use a PO239 connector I think is what it's called. Whatever u need to mount to structure and guy wires. I used light paracord and adjusted as needed over a couple days and plumbers strap to mount to my house passed through 3' section of 2" ABS (Pics didn't upload in order but I'm sure anyone can figure it out 🙂) I found that using the copper wire I had no need for the wire protruding out of the top. Since it's stiff it stands on its own in the PVC so I will lengthen the pipe eventually and make it the full length to cap the wire for a better weather-proof seal
