100m DX10 Antenna Wire
Legendary Mil Spec DX10 Arctic Grade (Type 8) antenna wire, tested by M0MCX, key-down at 1600W for 65 seconds at 14MHz.
For FT8 and other continuous duty modes above 21MHz, suggest max key-down power of circa 500W to avoid stress and heat build up at the end of the element alternatively, you can “QRO” the end of your wire by making a closed loop and soldering the end back on to itself (explained in DX Commander User Guide).
