WIRE SPLICING INLINE
Wire splicing for inline joining of aerial wire.
Technique for joining an antenna aerial wire. The technique while more laborious than crimp sleeves and similar methods is mechanically superior as there are no points of fatigue failure. This technique is most suited to copper wire.

Photo#1. Spread the wire strands and mate the two wires ensuring that the strand of each wire alternates with the strand of the other.

 

Photo#2. Hook one of the strands with a strand of the other as shown above.

 

Photo#3. Tightly rap the two hooked strands back along the wire for at least 4 turns however within reason the more the better.

 

Photo#4. Continue tightly raping each strand until completed.

 

Photo#5. Trim the excess from the strand rap and ensure that no sharp strand ends protrude from the completed splicing rap.
