I have used old coax for radials. at the connection point to the vertical, I short the inner conductor to the shield. Works great. I have experiemented with using different types of wire for radials

Bruce, I have seen others write about using various sizes (gauges) of wire for radials. From what I have read and seen larger conductors appear to be a waste. Very small gauge wire is as good within

I have seen many 'posts' about the size of the radials. But, I stand behind my results at 3 different QTHs (two in NY, one in Iowa). I count results as being able to consistently work DX! The only su

Tom, Your comments have been relayed on several website that discuss the radials under inverted the " L " for 160. Also on the Butternut site they say that the radials should AT LEAST be as long as t

With elevated radials operating at 180 kHz, the radials were probably a form of Litz wire, a multi-strand wire that has each strand insulated from the other. Such wire is necessary to get low loss at

You can, but you are really putting down just steel wire. The copper is the thinnest of flashes, just enough to keep the steel wire from oxidizing in protected environments. It won't survive outside

Very true! I do a fair amount of MIG welding and the wire has a short spool life if left inside an unprotected garage. I can imagine instant rust outside. Carl KM1H __________________________________

True, and galvanized electric fence wire won't last much longer. I put a bunch of it under a 40 meter vertical and it turned into a bunch of rust in a few years. 73 Tom W7WHY ________________________
