The R. F. Connection carries a variety of wires that we spec
depending on application. What we are recommending for your
application below is either a #14 copperclad bare wire or our #13
poly-jacketed copper clad wire. Both have a high tensile strenght
and are easy to work with. The poly-jacketed copperclad is the most
rugged wire that we carry. The price for it is .19/ft or .17/ft in
lengths of 100 feet or more. Please call for 1000 foot pricing.
> I've been asked to find 800-1000 feet of wire suitable for making any of a
> variety of "wire" antennas such as loops, Vees, slopers, etc. for low
> band (160-40 M) use. The wire will be used in a location where high
> winds and ice are not unusual, so tensile strength is important.
> Flexibility is also a factor as trees are the prime means of suspension
> and support.
> Possibly this has already been disussed and summarized. If so, please
> tell me where to look.
> Anyone with ideas of what I should look for and where I can find it,
> please pass it along to: firstname.lastname@example.org
