Hi, I am thinking about making an antenna using PVC piping, and I was just a little concerned after reading a very interesting article on some possible health risk in using PVC. I read the well composed and informative article on a very credible and well known site, http://www.hamwave.com The article is posted here http://www.pvc.hamwave.com . I was just wondering what others thought about this?

I don't know.

It seems certain, though, that building an antenna out of PVC is safer than running your drinking water through it. Lots of people do just that. It's approved for cold water pipes, and a different formulation called CPVC is used for hot water.

If it were a major health hazard, like smoking, there'd be a lot more dead people.

Climbing on roofs, on the other hand, is a major health risk. A friend's brother just got out of surgery to repair damage from a fall.
