So far I've made my own cloverleaf and skew planar antennas. I was very surprised at the relative ease of the build. Let me just say also that I'm extremely pleased with the results. I'm now ready to make a helical. My question is do y'all have any suggestions on the wire thickness of a helical. I used .035 welding wire for the others. I've got .035 wound through the antenna but I'm wondering now if I should use soft copper. The photo that Ive added is of the partially finished antenna. I'm just second guessing myself on wire thickness. thanks.
