Question just to confirm my observations: is the AWG system is based on
the wire diameter and not on cross-sectional area ?. For stranded wire
the crossectional area (measured/calculated) is smaller than that of the
solid wire (same AWG #) with obvious consequences to the resistance
(same copper grade). 
I've been brought up in a metric system so don't have the "feel" of the
AWG system.
