Here are some comments from Chuck (KK6USY):

n this video I show how to make a Inverted U rotatable dipole antenna that is multibanded. This is an antenna design from W4RNL L.B Cebik (SK). Cebik designed this antenna for use on Field Day and other portable operations. I will make a version that uses 1/2" EMT conduit to keep the cost down. Two 10' lengths of the conduit cost me 14.50 at a box store, so not bad for a good performing antenna! Now this antenna can be made more light weight and portable using 3 sizes of Aluminum tubing and over all length can be abdout 3'. Check the ARRL antenna handbook page 21.17-18. The conduit length for each side is 98.25", each side of the 15m is 55" As an Amazon affiliate I may receive a commission on some items sold. 25 ft Telescopic Aluminum Flag Pole, Neso aluminum Pole kit, AFA Tooling Deburring Tool Kit, The ARRL Handbook, Small File Set, LENOX Tools High-Tension Hacksaw, 39-Piece Drive Socket Wrench Set, U Bolt Assembly For Outdoor Antenna, Bosch 3/8 in.
