DON'T  !!!!
I made 2 BIG mistakes a while back in ENY...  the first was using Sears 
Aluminum electric fence wire....  It turned to a white powder after a few 
The 2nd was using galvanized fence wire...  Also cheap...  It turned to rust.  
In fact, The "copperweld" fence wire I used for beverages also rusted out and 
was nearly impossible to solder repair the inevitable fixes...  
Considering the work / hassle....  Do yourself a favor.  Get the 1000' spools 
of solid copper radial wire from Craig at (or else where if 
you can locate it)
I'm nearly done installing the first 3000 feet here ...  Another 3000 on this 
tower yet to go...
