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.
