Use them as Faraday shields between low Z links. Strip the ends of all wires
on one end, tie all of the stripped ends together by placing one wire across
all stripped ends and solder them together. Ground the ends that are  
soldered together, use a short ground wire. ( do not use between links  
with HV on the
links-most PVC wont stand much voltage). Cut the ribbon to size with sharp
sizzor's, leave the insulation intact on the non stripped end.

Helps prevent "top side capacity coupling".

Probably not a new idea but makes fabricating the shield in receivers easy.
