 I'm using nickel-copper wire rope on the 40m linear loaded elements of my F12 
C-4XL. McMaster-Carr has 7x7-strand 1/16" diameter for $1.24/ft (#3453T32).

Hi all,

I'm rebuilding my Force12 40m yagi. What would you recommend as replacement
for the alumoweld linear loading wires? Some of these wires have snapped in
the past due to years of vibration.

Note: as part of the rebuild I am adding truss supports for the 3 elements
in order to remove the stress on the linear loading wires.
