I've read enough of his posts to assure you that Bill does not misunderstand skin effect. He did not say that there is no skin effect. Clearly there is. What he said is that it is wrong to say that wire cannot be used because of skin effect. Wire CAN be used. In fact, it IS used quite often and quite effectively.

Why so many people continue to insist that you CANNOT use wire, and can ONLY use copper tape for an RF ground is beyond me.
