You can be sure it does not meet MIL spec but, as I said in a pinch it is nice to have that type of thing local to put up wire antennas.


Not all Parachute cord is created equally. The "real stuff" meets Mil-Spec, what Hobby Lobby is selling will probably work for light antennas, but I'd wager a small amount that this stuff is probably Chinese Sweat Shop quality that is being sold to plat key lanyards, etc. which is the latest artsy craze.
