Hi paul,
All thin wire is a royal PITA! I use 22AWG stranded up to about 125 feet (aerospace grade, i.e. more than 7 or 9 strands). I'll not say I have no trouble with it but I do have less trouble with it. It also helps to prep the wire length you're using, i.e. unwind it and get all the kinks out of it and then rewind it taking care to eliminate any twists the rewinding process introduces.
Just my $0.02 worth.

Re: Antenna wire

Charles W. Powell
 

I have been using solid copper “dog fence” (perimeter fence) wire.  it is essentially bell wire, and I have no trouble with it tangling.  I was reeling it up but now I’ve started to do a “figure 8” wind between my thumb and pinky, like you would do with cord or rope.  It works very well.  Just my 2¢

I use #22 teflon covered wire.  The teflon insulation has less trouble releasing twists than any other small wire I have used.

No OzarkCon for me..

JT Croteau <jt.tobit@...>
 

I was really hoping to tie OzarkCon 2016 in with the move to my land
in Missouri but it doesn't look like it will coincide well. I do plan
to be in 0-land sometime this year though. Over this past winter, I
have been a caretaker for a small farm in NY state while the owner
tries to sell. It has been slow to sell and I think I will stay here
until it does. It should move this spring though as the owner will be
lowering the price quite a bit next week.

Meanwhile, I've been thinking about antennas for my Missouri land.
I'd like to focus on 160, 80, and 40M DX as I've never had the luxury
of owing so much land before. I have 5 acres, mostly wooded however,
so I hope I can get away with the following antennas without removing
too many trees:

A 125' doublet fed with 600-ohm connected to my Johnson Matchbox
A 1/4-wave vertical (or two end-fired) for 40M
Two inverted L's - one for 80 and one for 160
A reversible beverage for 80 and 160 - would love two to cover 4
directions but don't think space will allow.

Somewhat modest plans. The doublet should cover local 80M work and be
a good all around antenna on the higher bands.

Been lurking, still lurking..
