    The PVC is just a mount for the multiple length antenna segments.

    I think.

    It wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't PVC.

    This is a lot like guys who insist on Free plans for a boat.
    They don't realize that they are risking all the investment by insisting on a cheap base for the project.
    Every time I do that I have to build it over again, negating the savings.

    An antenna is just a thin long piece of wire. A sailboat mast is a perfect thing to hang it from. I still don't get it.
