I used this for the original antennas for my 80 meter lazey V phased
array. I made a mistake by soldering it at the baluns-as it flexed the
tiny strands of wire broke at the solder joint one at a time until the
antennas crashed to earth. Also the tiny strands make nasty splinters
that are difficult to get out of your fingers. I replaced the flexi
weave with 7 strand hard drawen copper and those are still up. Just my
2.5 cents (allowing for inflation).
