Using insulated wire is certainly an option.  This is the first HF
antenna I've put up so I'm just beginning to explore what is available
in terms of materials.  The use of insulated wire begs a couple of
questions I've been looking into.

Is insulated copper coated steel wire available to minimize stretching
under tension?

What insulation materials will hold up through a long period of UV

As a beginner here all of the information I'm looking for isn't
immediately at my finger tips.  That's why I'm looking into a number of
options and asking questions.
