    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. :D

    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
