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).
