Bought some, but what I received is so hard it is near impossible to
bend. The 9ga solid Al fencing wire seems like a better alternative,
although I've been using the 13ga for elevated radials. They claim a
30ksi yield strength so compared to soft steel at 38ksi it should stand
up. Relative to 80 to 100ksi hard wire it won't.
Even the solid Al wire has a strong winding memory so it takes some care
or better two people to string it without kinks.
