1/2 wave 40 meter band dipole construction

This is my attempt to make a half decent dipole using galvanized 2mm wire rope and galvanized wire rope clamps. 1 1/4″ UV protected water pipe, female panel mount N connector and electrical wire which will be made to be as waterproof as possible.

    Is the stainless steel wire the dipole, or the supporting wires?

    The galvanized wire is the dipole itself, as zinc is not bad RF conductor 😉
