Irrigation pipe is great cheap source of tubing to use for verticals.  I =
built a 75m bobtail curtain out of 20' sections of used irrigation pipe =
that I got from a farmer..  I joined the sections together with a two =
foot section of 3" pipe that I split/cut and used sheet metal screws to =
keep everything together.  The pipe will need at least two sets of guys, =
(nylon rope).  Stainless steel pipe clamps with chain links spaced 120 =
deg around the pipe will do for guy tieoffs.  Simple but effective.  The =
antenna is very broadbanded.  I had some help from some of the hams on =
the antenna reflector for the tuning ckt.
