this Information is specifically about ladder line.
here is an example of a dipole with ladder line
REMEMBER LADDER LINE HAS LOWER LOSS THAN COAX.
here is a typical dipole design
Spacing of the wires in ladder line (and their relative diameter) sets the impedance of the line.
advantages of ladder line
LOW LOSS, less expensive, easy to make, perfect for dipole or loop
disadvantages of ladder line
should not touch almost anything, (house, leaves, metal, trees, etc)
