I would like to install an 80 meter 1/4 wave vertical, using elevated
radials, back in the bush behind my house. Remembering the difficulty I
encountered installing a 7 mHz version (raising the 33 feet of aluminum
tubing by myself up through the trees and bush and bending same), I wonder
if anyone knows of a source for aluminum tubing, about 6 feet in length,
swagged on both ends. I'm thinking of pushing the tubing straight up,
adding manageable lengths from the bottom until I hit the 66-foot range. A
dx-pedition type vertical could be what I'm looking for, but have not found
any advertised as yet. Any commercial antenna companies selling something
like this? Any other suggestions?

Regards, Paul.
