Quad wire question
- Looking at finally getting my new quad built and was looking at using
14guage solid copper wire, insulated that I was given (250'+/-) and was
considering the insulation as to change in resonance?
Designed for 50.200, 7 elements on a 20' boom.
Thanks for the help in advance

- Insulation (assuming it's the usual plastic covering, low loss stuff) should make no measureable difference at 50 mhz. Cut the antenna to the specified dimensions. May make some difference at 420 mhz and above, would strip off the insulation if using the wire for UHF beams.

- Why a Quad, anyhow ? Has no advantage over a Yagi of comparable length, harder to build, tune, install, rotate and keep up in wind and ice storms.
