I was at another contester's station not too long ago, and
noticed that he had constructed his inverted vees with
insulated wire, and had looped several feet of excess wire
on the ends back on itself without removing the insulation.

I wondered about weird end-loading effects, and possibly
arcing under high power. Any thoughts or experience one way
or the other?
