This is indeed a valid point. Further investigation required.
I typically insult myself when I don’t live up to my own expectations.
A typo for "insulated" that has become the basis of a joke thread.
Or a wire that has been insulted in some manner. Like, “Your a horrible conductor! Maybe in wire school the little strand was told, “Based on your Velocity Factor we think you are a little slow.” Or the middle aged Mrs. Wire that’s told, “You look a little oxidized today.”
Antennas with good self esteem usually resonate better so be nice to your wire.
I've only insulted the wire of G5RVs.
Perhaps “insulted wire” refers to the practice of stretching the wire to work harden it.
But to be on the safe side, I plan to hurl epithets at my wire antennas later today.
You are correct sir!
In fact - the FCC thinks so too. In Part 97, 80m and 75m are treated as separate bands.
I am not making this up.

I dunno, wire usually insults me first, it tangles and stretches and comes on rolls with three ends....
It deserves the treatment it gets. Even if its feelings are hurt.
To date I have only insulted clothes line wire which felt like steel wire and only insulted after "it"smacked me about eye brow high as I unknowingly ran at it in the dark. My insults seemingly had no effect whatsoever. LOL
Let me check my insult matrix.
