Otherwise know as brake pipe. Has anyone experimented using cunifer cupro nickel brake line in antenna construction? It is readily available, cheap and is more corrosion resistant than standard copper tube which could be idea for me as I live by the coast. Also bending tools and coupling kits are easy to come by and it should be relatively easy to solder to.
Thanks
Paul.

People use it for building heavy-duty coils an antennas and matching circuits, so as long as it's strong enough to bear its own weight it will be fine.
