So if I buy a pack of Aluminum welding rods to make a 2m antenna, how do
you bond them together for the correct length?  Put a torch to them and
melt them together?

Long ago I made a few WA5VJB antennas.. but I used soft drawn copper and I
want to make one that's more rugged and can be outside without fear of
