This question already has an answer here:

I need to design an antenna using the tool FEKO. The antenna is supposed to work in VHF frequency and has a gain of around 2.2 dB. What is the best material to use and what are the specifications of the materials that I need to consider before designing the antenna?

This is a very generic answer, but I would avoid metals such as steel, and go with the more popular conductors like Copper or Aluminum.

I have several aluminum VHF antennas and they work great.
