Now that the big recent flurry of beverage antennas has died down, we
have come across a bunch of wire that might be interesting. Oh well!

This is various lots of 18, 16, and 14 gauge stranded bare copper
jacketed with PVC in  several colors. It is more flexible than THHN, but
not as stiff as site wire. It would be good for several years of UV at
least, perhaps more, being rated "Good" in the comparison tables.

It will cost, in the same order as listed above, 3, 4, and 5 cents a foot
in 5000(prox) foot reels. There may be up to 3 splices in the 5000 feet,
and the color may not be the same throughout the reel. Lesser footage
(1to 4K, add 1 cent per foot).

This is brand new stuff, so it could be re-spooled and sold for at least
3 X the price if one wants to play the game and make a few bucks. Might
be a good club project!
