What type of solid copper wire would I need to build an antenna ground plane for Amateur UHF & VHF radio to use?

I research in the construction of an antenna that was presented in December 2008issue QC. He expects that 10 or 12 gauge copper son solid. I did a search on Radio Shack and I'm going with several types of cables. What type of wire should I use for this antenna? Thank you.

I used 10 GA SOLID COPPER WITH A WITHDRAWAL black plastic 2 FT AN END TO LOOP I RAN TRAP 2 AP at both ends of my 50 FT HOME droped down 20 FT AND GROWNED a row to a COPER 6 FT GROUND ROD TO THE OTHER SIDE EICO my transmitter EAST WEST = and I talked to all members Thus, America and throughout the world IN THIS HOUSE W 300 antana wonders on APPROVAL AND SCANNER CB
