I'm familiar with steel tape measures as elements for 2 meter yagis, but I've never seen the same principal applied to the HF bands.  In this video from KI4PMI and NC4FB, we see how common steel tape measures can be used for antennas covering 40 through 06 meters.  According to NC4FB, you change bands by adjusting the length of the steel tape measure. An ingenious, creative, and inexpensive way to use common materials as antenna elements.  This antenna covers amateur radio frequencies from 40 through 06 meters.  You can have plenty of fun working with this type of antenna.
