Topband: Antenna question

If Cat 5 cable will work why won't two wire twisted air audio cable? Is 
it because of the tightness of the twist that is of concern. I see no 
reason it won't work except for the cancellation property of twisted 
pair but with a Beverage we are dealing with a different wire signal 
propagation medium....unless of course it has a shield like most 
broadcast audio wire used today does, then all bets are off.
