Antenna aluminum rod source?



Hi,

I have already done the Google, but was wondering if anyone can recommend a
good source of aluminum rods in small quantities for use in antennas?  In
particular, 3/16" round stock, made of what is usually referred to as
aircraft T-5 or T-6 aluminum.  The local sources so far have turned out to
be rather soft alloys rather than the springy stuff used in beams, etc.  And
of course any firm with the word "aircraft" in the name wants 10-20X times
the price.
