Heavy Duty Antenna Wire Military Green (50m)

A bargain price for 50 metre (160 ft) drums of the new Heavy Duty version of our popular Military Green wire. This heavy duty wire has a stranded tinned copper conductor and a UV-stable  PVC jacket. It is ideal for making permanent antennas. The 50 metre reel size is perfect for making most HF antennas (such as an 80m dipole). Our exclusive Millitary Green cable jacket colour is unobtrusive in many applications - perfect for antennas, radials and counterpoises. With a resistance of less than 1 Ohm/50 metres, it's great for high power use too!

    Posted by Phil Baguley on 24th May 2020

    I have not done anything with the cable yet. However, it appears to be of good quality and is perfect for my plans. The service from Sotabeams is exemplary and SWMBO always appreciated the bonus packet of sweets enclosed!

    Quite happy with the service, but perhaps using a different delivery company. Many other parcel services are much quicker even in times when we are in a lock down situation, just a thought

    I have purchased several rolls of this cable and have never had issues with it, nor the supplier. I used it on my inv L and also underground as radials and its lasts and last and lasts.

    Easy to work with

    I have lost count of the number of antennas I have made with this wire. It is sturdy, reliable and easy to work worth. My 'go to' wire for antenna experiments.
