Wet line may show an increase in loss but the antenna still works...
I have 4 dipoles fed with "ladderline" and use them on all bands.
Roughly 300 countries on each WARC band, all with wire antennas.
(Two 80M dipoles, 100 ft center fed, and 20M dipole which gives a
figure 8 pattern from 10 through 30 MHz)
