RE: Re: Horizontal Boom



Better yet, put a bratwurst inside the PVC.  If it's raw, the PVC blocks
RF.  If it cooks, eat it!

RE using PCV pipe for a cross boom.  Some PCV pipe is not invisible to 
RF energy.  Put a piece of the PCV in your microwave (with a glass of 
water of course) and see if it heats up.  If it does you might as well 
go all the way and use a metal cross boom.  As has been discussed, ad 
infinitum, on here, if done correctly, the metal boom will be fine.
