    Be careful on what kind of wire, don't use a stainless, aluminum or copper works great. The problem I've had using this stuff where I live is it builds up a massive amount of ice and then when we have wind it oscillates and flops like crazy, I can't use one where I live.
    Naturally it's going to give you a bit more bandwidth since it's a larger-diameter conductor.

    Low-to-the-ground fence wires not a good idea , may be good for some high angle, regional paths on 160 , 80 or 60 Meter bands.
    Signals from a simple wire dipole, up higher, would be a LOT better.
    IMHO

    Thanks for your comment; it appears that QRZ Hams have gone the way of Fakebook. It would have been just fine to say you don't like it or nothing at all.

    I have no idea what you are talking about here. This is an advertisement for a product that I make and sell and lots of people seem to like. The forums or Fakebook can be found elsewhere.

    Since almost every major antenna manufacturer utilizes Stainless Steel in their antennas i am sure they will find your information invaluable as have I. Don't we all wish for the space to have a Rhombic antenna farm?

    Please enlighten me as to why this should be posted where Hams are given space to sell the products they work hard at making. The forums are found elsewhere on QRZ or you could utilize Fakebook.

    This is NOT the QRZ Swap Meet the last time I checked; please go over there to hawk your snake-oil, kind sir.;)

    This IS the antenna forum where we are all free to discuss, analyze, question, poke fun at and criticize antennas relentlessly.:eek::D:confused::(:):rolleyes:o_O

    This succint and to-the-point reply by Jerry is why most hams rely on better and simpler conductors for antennas---copper wire rules (unless one wants to spend a fortune on silver Litz wire)!

    You are ABSOLUTELY correct sir! Sometimes when people are tired or feel otherwise it just stings more than it should. Have your fun I guess it puts a smile on your face. 73
