Choosing wire for antennas is important because you need both strength and longevity. Bare wire was often the choice of ham radio operators in the early days. However, it quickly discolours, can stretch if not hard drawn and is prone to breaking with age. A range of wire that we are now promoting is the Kevlar covered multi strand type. Kevlar is extremely strong, is not affected by weather or exposure to the sun and the multi strand makes it very flexible. All in all it is a great choice.
