[TowerTalk] Antenna wire

The capacitance between the wires should have no effect since there is no voltage difference between them, however the increased quantity of insulation material and the larger effective wire diameter will probably lower the resonant frequency a few percent so be prepared to trim the length as necessary.

Hi All

I have a BUNCH of some kind of multi wire cable that * picked up ag
Goodwill*.  It has 6 separate wires in the cable.

What I was wondering is if I use this for antenna wire, will the
capacitance between the wires affect the length. I would short the wires
together at each end.

Thanks and 73
