Onderwerp: Re: Topband: Bury beverage wire?


I recall an article somewhere about a gentleman who buried a section of his beverage under a road on his farm. His method was to bury a non-conductive pipe, then run the beverage through it. He used tennis balls around the wire inside the pipe to insulate.

Did it work? Not sure. Initial googling has come up empty. But it *has* been done.

if crossing a driveway above ground is not an option, is ist ok to bury the beverage wire for, say, 20 feet?
