Gerry I see George has already answered your question. I will back it up by 
saying I had the same "brilliant" idea and bought a reel of MIG  wire to 
make a cage style dipole for 75/80 Meters in hopes of greater bandwidth.  I 
don't think the MIG wire lasted longer than 48 hours before I noticed it 
rusting through-Sigh!!

I used standard bare copper wire instead that a local wire place brought in 
a 1000 feet or so for me.
