I have made a few antennas so far and have found the shield to be quite smooth if not slippery which is a good thing as it should not grab in the bush. While it is flexible I was hoping for a limpy line but this should do the job quite well.
I was pleased with the quantity vs the cost.
I only operate barefoot at the moment and needed a stealthy wire for an antenna project which goes out of the window of my flat. This fits the bill perfectly!!
Love it, light but seems very strong. I am using it as end fed with a 9:1. Made 15 contacts in one sitting on Dec 24 2019
This is the 2nd reel of this wire I've bought. It's lightweight, stows easily, and is if not invisible, pretty stealthy. It's great for experimenting and for knocking together portable aerials. Price is quite fair, as is the shipping. Recommended.
I purchased the Yellow Wire because I needed it to have good visibility for any one that might get near the setup. The Quality is Excellent, and the weight and strand strength are good, - not too fine that it becomes problematic in the field if repairs are needed. So all in all I very much like the Antenna Wire - busy setting up a couple of antennas at the moment.
Very good quality antenna wire which handles easily 100 W SSB. Stealth and durable. Very satisfied with performance.
I was looking for a good quality and resistant wire for antennas to My SOTA operations.
On arrival it was unwound and checked over , quality wire , I made and inverted V using my Sota Pole , very good results , worth the money ,
Brilliant stuff, I have the brown colour that disappears from view. Used for doublets, long wire and also to wind loading coils for short vertical antennas, well worth ordering from the UK
