Hello, I'm hunting some of that old copper clad, phone company 
dropline...It makes good cheap antennas. I made a 40 meter loop out of 
some once and used some of it for the matching stub (72ohm). Its tough, 
a little hard to work with but well worth the effort. So, if any of you 
guys out there might have some around, I'd certainly like to get it to 
make our field day antennas out of...73, Alan
ps. I'm always open to suggestions of something else to use..
