Antenna wire
« on: March 23, 2019, 01:57:18 PM »
Is it ok to connect shorter runs of wire to make one long antenna run? Any cons to this? Thanks to everyone for your input.

When joining wire for a HF antenna, use strong, soldered connections. For portable antennas I use 18ga. wire, for long term antennas I use 14ga wire. de KA5SIW
