[TenTec] Dipole Over Pool Enclosure

Do any members of the group have experience with erecting a random length dipole about 5 feet over a swimming pool enclosure made of a grounded aluminum structure and fiberglass netting?   (Enclosure is about 15 feet high at its peak and the antenna will be about 5 feet over this.)

I am wondering how the grounded aluminum frame will affect the radiation (and loading) characteristics of the antenna.

I will be feeding the antenna with a Ten Tec Omni 6+, a Titan Linear and a TT 238 tuner via RG-213 cable.

Any insights, guidance and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Please reply off line to me at KnoxCOL at aol.com

Thank you and 73!
