Braided or solid...that is the question.
Neither. Being a typical ham, I'm cheap. Most hamfests have short lengths
hardline. I got some nice air filled 1/2 inch stuff for free which I pounded
flat. It has lots of surface area and is easy to work with. Another
alternative is to pick up scrap strips of 6 inch wide copper flashing and to
into thinner strips. Again lots of surface area and if you get it at a scrap
metals dealer, it's cost effective.
By the way, for those of you who are familiar with my station, the last of
the 200 footers is coming down today.
