Tv antennas and Tv reception

As I recall , flexible soft aluminum wire for electric , 120 volt , 240 volt , electric systems is no longer used for wiring. The flexible soft aluminum wire gives way in connectors and then the connection is loose and intermittent. Special connectors are required and even then it's not safe. I remember something about law suites concerning , soft aluminum wire that was used to wire , buildings , house and mobile homes. . . Cost more money in fuel for the car driving around looking for aluminum wire then just buying copper wire to begin with. I recommend using copper wire that is made for grounding. It's hard it's tough , is made to last a long time outside.
