I had a coperweld-based horizontal loop at my QTH for a couple of
years. After that time, the copper cladding corroded off. I replaced the
clad wire with, I guess, #14 stranded bare copper. The wire was a hamfest
special; not sure of who sold it. But that stuff lasted for seven more
years before I took it down two summers ago. Surface was still in pretty

My wire loop came down this week in a heavy ice storm.
I would like to put it up again with high strength wire.
Can anyone recommend a wire/source that would have
good strength but not be too difficut to handle. I have looked
at the FlexWeave which has a beaking strengh of 150lbs
and CableExperts #12 hard drawn copper which has a
breaking strength of 200lbs. I know Copperweld would
be the strongest, but it's hard to work with. Any suggestions ??
