Amen to that. I have found that just about every garage sale I go to has a
ball of wire laying around for a nickle or so. I grab everyone I find :-)
I have 3 40 meter verticals and an inverted L for 160 so I need all the
radioal wire I can get my hands on.
One thing you don't want to do is use galvanized wire. I bought a 1/4 mile
roll of it when I put up my first vertical about 10 years ago, and it is
just about all gone now. Just rust piles where it used to be. 73
