I can get some old massive size power transmission cable straight out of the power station. I have the space to erect some posts and go just over 500m but with permission I might get 1km or more. Will use a metal pipe in the ground for ground. This is not technically a dipole, would a dipole be better. What formal problem is this configuration and how would I simulate its performance and optimise it. Does the large diameter of the aluminium cable make a better antenna than just regular copper wire for electronic circuits? The cable will need serious infrastructure to hold it up. I want to simulate if a V antenna a dipole or my proposed single straight antenna is best. Standard software I download for free won't do the job.
