FLEX-WEAVE TM is a sophisticated hybrid aerial wire. Its new innovation provides rope lay construction strength and high flexibility. It can be tied in knots to insulators and untied for repeated use. FLEX-WEAVE TM is sometimes referred to as "wire rope" or "jewelers rope". It will not kink or rust out as will copper-clad wire. This flexible wire has also been used for rapid deployment, spool-out, military aerials.

FLEX-WEAVE TM comes in 14 Gauge (168 strands of #36 wire), or 12 Gauge (259 strands of #36 wire)  and is excellent for quads, dipoles, long wires, and rapid deployment (spooled-out) antennas.  FLEX-WEAVE TM  comes with highly UV resistant polyethylene jackets. FLEX-WEAVE TM is the "Cadillac of aerial wire". It has been written about in all amateur radio publications since its introduction in 1989. This revolutionary product has been used by thousands of hams, commercial firms, and government agencies.

Dean, WA6PJR says "That's what all antennas should be made of" and Press Jones, N8UG, The Wireman Co. and "Guru" of wire and cable, says "The workhorse .... rope type construction for strength, ultra-flexibility, and easy handling".

Perfect for the wire antenna that you don’t want anyone to see! POLY-STEALTH High Strength Aerial Wires are manufactured with high strength, high conductivity Bare Copper-Clad Steel (BCCS) and insulated with a high quality UV Resistant Polyethylene to provide you with one of the strongest and longest lasting antenna wires on the market today.  Advantages of using Poly-Stealth™:


Poly-Stealth™ 18

Price:  .24/ft.  Specify number of feet after adding to cart.

Antenna Wire

450 ohm, 92% velocity factor, very flexible ladder line.  Featuring 16 gauge, 19 strand, copperclad steel  conductors with a polyethylene jacket for good weather resistance to water and UV.  Stranded conductors offer better flexibility than solid, which translates into longer survivability in windy areas.


LL450-FX

450 ohm ladder line for wire antennas.  Our balanced transmission lines feature the same quality and durability of the coax cables above, because they come from the same sources!

Ladder Line

Similar to the ladder line above but with 18 gauge solid copperclad steel conductors.  Polyethylene jacket for UV and weather protection.


LL450-551

Price:  .29/ft.  Specify number of feet after adding to cart.

NEW! The WA1FFL Ladder-Loc® is a strain-relief and mounting support for 450-ohm ladder-line. It is UV-stabilized and has a proven field record of durability. Over 15,000 have been shipped to satisfied users.

Ladder-Loc Insulator

NEW!  Don’t assemble your next dipole antenna without one of these CENTER and END insulator combos. They're designed for strength, and to provide equipment protection with a built-in replaceable SEP Arc-Plug® Static Electricity Protector. Ideal for dipoles, Vees, zepps and all kinds of SWL receive antennas. Feeds with either coax or balanced line. Rated for full legal power.

The SEP Arc-Plug protector which is mounted in the DELTA-C center insulator bleeds off slow rising static electricity charges routing them harmlessly to ground, before they can enter the shack thru the feedline. This is far more effective than DC grounded baluns or chokes, which can be "popped" by static charges. Dangerous static charges are developed from thunderstorms, high wind driven snow or desert sand, and have been measured to 1,000’s of volts; so potent, they can puncture the dielectric of unterminated coax.

The DELTA-C Center Insulator and DELTA-CIN end-insulators are fabricated with an extremely rugged UV and RF resistant DELTALLOY material that is so tough, you can drop it off a roof without damage. Don’t rely on fragile ceramic or glass insulators! Only stainless steel hardware used in the center insulator for salt air and other corrosive environments, and all internal connections are hard soldered.
