I’m not trying to do anything. I would rather have kept it vague, but I guess it’s impossible to get a perfect answer with an imperfect question.
I’m talking about command wires for IEDs. I understand how IR, RF, command wire (with two wires), fuse, pressure plate, crush wire and pretty much every kind of initiator works.
However, I have come across thread-thick, uninsulated copper wire strung across great distances. Others have claimed with no doubt that it’s a command wire. I have seen these wires terminate at what seem to be obvious observation points. So, the likely are some type of command wire.
But I can’t comprehend how exactly a single strand of copper wire can do anything WRT sending a current or electric signal from A to B. I doubt that the 3’ stake in the ground is the method. Is it possible to use such a medium to trigger a device?
Please keep your posts here as vague as possible for obvious reasons. If you have expert knowledge and lots of details, I’d appreciate a PM from you.
Bottom line, could something be used as a primitive command wire or not?
