The use  of proper wire, helps, too.  I use #10 soft-drawn copper; instead  of
snapping, it probably stretches.  My 80-meter dipole might well be  41 meters
in length by now.  That's not all bad -- a little extra  length adds a little
extra broadside gain....

To take care of that problem, I simply run the rope and then attach the  wire 
to the rope with tape and/or ties.  No stretching of the wire since  there is 
no tension on the wire.
