So, from your assertion, there is no difference.
So, you are saying that the military uses it for no reason at all?
Also, at 100A, that 24Ga wire in either style won't last long enough
Also, if it is better than 1% at 1000 feet, what makes you think it
wouldn't be better at one foot?
Another thing. If you want your sig to work properly in
newsreaders, you need to put only TWO dashes at the beginning of the
line. Three negates the entire purpose as it is non-functional.
