Also Fiberglass bars can be used , the cutting board brings some ideas to my head, i get a few years ago some industrial material , Nylon or similar, that was used for gears in some food machine, the one that can be easy cutted in good element brackets, also in the N6CA web page he use something that can be good option.
and also I want to get a good design of 6m Antena using the 3/8 elements and KLM original mounting , i have a 7 elements that i wll like to convert in a bigger gain antenna.
