A Slinky Beverage (Beverage is capitalized since it's a person's last name) is
nothing more than a few (eight works ok) metal Slinky's soldered together,
supported by a non-conducting rope inside them, and installed and terminated just
like a Beverage, in all respects.
An EWE works better than the eight Slinky Beverage in my view. Mine and others'
opinions are found on links at ZJ Electronics home page: http://www.QTH.com/ZJ
