I am installing the mods from W6QHS article on my 40-2CD 40 meter beam
and have a few questions.
- to secure the reinforcing sections of tubing I drilled and tapped a
hole to install a 6/32 ss screw. Should I have used a rivet ??
- I plan on using ss steel hose clamps when connecting the feed line to
the driven elements . To do this I am wondering if I will effectively
driven elements since I will have to put the feed line connections
outboard of the center insulator?
- If I change the feed point connections I am thinking of maching (the
guys in the machine shop will) a piece of Garolite the same diamater
but longer to add
some mechanical strength?? this isn't important it's just an idea..
I am using the boom from an old 204ba so I won't bothr with the boom
Thanks for reading this and for any comments...
