Topband: Inverted "L" Radiation Resistance vs vertical heigh t

While I'm here, is there a source of #16 or #18 CCS wire in large
quanties?  I saw a large spool of welding wire that appeared
to be copper coated, but it seems the copper coating is to thin
to make this wire useful for radials.

Thinking as you, several years ago I got a 3' piece of the "copper coated"
welding wire from a fabricator friend. I laid it in the grass and in less
than a week, it was already beginning to RUST! Avoid it like the plague.
Good hunting.
