Have been hamming for 67 years and use Tru Ladder line on several antennas over the years. Delta Loops and center fed Zepps. . . always delivers great reports. Very nice folks to deal with, quality product.
If you are thinking about purchasing feed line, buy True Ladder Line. Skip the coax and never look back. It’s the best purchase I ever made in my ham career. Excellent service and support!
This is now the only source I've found of ready-made solid or stranded copper open wire line. All other sources I have found user copper-clad steel (CCS) wire. At some ham band frequencies, the copper cladding in those wires is thinner than the skin depth in copy, inevitably leading to higher losses in those products. I strongly recommend this open wire line.
Antenna tunes so smoothly with open wire compared to ladder line. Much quieter on receive. Noted a big difference on my signal on reverse beacon. Taking into account for qsb
