That would work, use series parallel combo of 100ohm 2W (8 of them) to get
50, put them in a paint can of mineral oil and it will take at least
30-40W and work to 30+mhz if assembled using or copper strips.

Most common mods are to go from balanced to coax. Ladder line feeding
a 60ft end fed zepp or marconi will do well. At that power level you have
to make sure the modulation is good and very clean or you loose
