Thanks to copper speculators, wire is no longer cheap, but it still 
costs a LOT less than a power amp (or the electricity to run the amp).  
Use what you have, but don't stop at 75 ft of "found" wire -- beg, 
borrow, or steal some more. Go to a hamfest. Go to an electronics 
surplus store. Scrounge in your mother-in-law's basement. Cut up old 
power cords. More is better. :)
