My xmit antenna is a 3/4 inch copper pipe suspended from the ceiling of my basement and running horizontally along the joists. It is fed via a link coupled L/C coil tuned to a very sharp resonance. The reason I am using the pipe is that I built it with the intent of installing it outdoors with a radial system but the project never got off (or above) the ground and I decided to try it indoors. Prior to using the pipe I used a wire and hence the observation I related in the other thread.
It is not a great setup but it covers my house and yard nicely and keeps all the equipment indoors.
