Wire for antennas

Postby Wiggles » Sun Jul 17, 2016 3:41 pm

Any recommendation for gauge/metal for antenna wire, specifically for 15mm. I'm looking for something that will retain it's shape after being squished for long periods of time i.e. while packed.

Paint brush bristles work best - you know your DIY type bushes for paints walls / garden fences etc (that's what I use anyway); also depends on the level of squishing and at what temperature the squishing takes place in relation to shape retention.....

And given that I am painting my house... I love it when these things work out

Depending on how bothered you are, this article has a technique involving spare bits of sprew and a lighter.
