I  use pvc insulated 14 AWG for all my antenna installation when I  "do" wire 
antennas. I used it for dipoles and for ladder feeds and have had no  
problems. It is a little heavier and has larger area than 16 AWG so you  have 
consider if that is OK with your supports. (I am using it because  somebody 
me a 500' roll that was left over after an electric installation)  You can get 
wire in any electric or hardware store, even Lowes and Home  Depot.

Subj: [TowerTalk] Suggestions for Quad  wire?

Hi TowerTalkians:
I'm going to build a 3el 5-band  quad, 20-10M, and I'm looking for 
suggestions re: what wire to use, and  where to get it. has: "Silky' 16 AWG, 19 strand, tinned,  40% 
copper-clad steel. Designed as a replacement for restringing quads,  but 
popular as an easy-to-use dipole wire."
That seems to be the only  wire on that page with the word "quad" in the 
description. Is this the  right stuff, or is there something better?
And/or somewhere better to get  it? Won't be used beyond 1500W  PEP.
