great wire, thanks
Excellent wire for the price / quantity. 73 de MI3JHF.
I measured out 10 meters of cable and put a banana plug on one end, then secured the other to a plastic spacer. I then used some more of the cable the other end of the spacer purely for tension. I plugged it into my Icom AH-705 and it tunes to every band bar 160m with an SWR 1.1 to 1.5 Very pleased.
Very light stranded wire. I would not trust it to bear any strain but supported by cord does the job and does not make the antenna heavy to support. I chose the hi-viz option as I'm not expecting any objections and I want to see where it is!
Arrived promptly in the present circumstances well done.
Have bought this wire in the past and found to be very good indeed and at a great price.
Well I got the order in about 10 days from the UK to Mississippi in the USA, which was surprising in these virus days. Yes it is thin and strong too. I was very pleased with this purchase. It will be great for any portable operation. I’m using it now with my 9:1 UNUN in my backyard. Looking out my bedroom window it takes a moment to find it hanging in the air. So if you need good strong wire that almost invisible, then this wire is for you. 73 wd4dda
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
