CH-33 10 Director Metal Boom Non-Insulated

Here's yet another design. This is specifically designed to use 1" square metal tube as the main boom, #8 AWG solid wire as the element material. The reflector, directors and center point opposite the feed point gap in the folded dipole all are in direct contact with the boom (no insulators are used in the design except possibly at the feed point if the foleded dipole needs to be supported at the gap/terminals).

If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
