    Where can I get this cable?

    NorCal QRP Club - NorCal Doublet Antenna

    They refer to it as 'multiwire flat computer cable', but I Googled and I can't find anything like it.
    Can anyone help?

    Is this the right sort of cable? Grey IDC 0.05in Pitch : Networking, Computer Data Cable : Maplin

    You can get it from CPC also but I can't see anything less than 10m.

    I had a very long multi-colour reel of this stuff ( at least 25 way) not so long ago, but was binned because i had no use for it!!

    I've not read the article link in detail, so unsure if the cable you require has any specific technical requirements etc, but could 2 lots of 2 core speaker cable suffice?
    The PoundShops sell speaker cable in packs of 10m lengths.

    Could try this, Grey IDC 0.05in Pitch : Networking, Computer Data Cable : Maplin and just split it down to 4 cores.
