I took some time, but I finally made my 6m dipole. Since I work for a plumbing company, I decided to use copper pipe and fittings :) Here are some pics:
I did a bit of antenna modeling before I made this antenna. I was hoping that it would be as good as the model suggested - the 1/2" copper pipe really gave it a nice bandwidth!
Since I was trying to get it resonant for weak signal work, you can see that it's really matched quite well for 50.125 - I'm quite happy!!!
