      I use 17 gauge electric fence wire. It was easy to solder. I modified the coax connection by soldering it directly to the driven elements. I did not use the European screw type connectors because I feel that the connection will fail after a few years. The driven wires are secured to bolts on the center support for mechanical mounting and the coax is soldered to the wire for the electrical connection . The solder joint doesn’t have any stress at all.
