Your friend can take a look for the
DIS-71 from hygain, the dipole can be configured to
be used with a pair of relays to have 30m
W8DX write an article how to do it
this dipole is less than 300 dlls
good aluminium and the only week point is the joint
after the insulator , but when you know it you can add
a flexible joint to prevent the damage in windy
I have the 2 elements and works , similar desing .
