I just fail to see why a specific wiring pattern that has very minuscule amounts of wire exposed at the end could actually have any significant effect on actual performance of the wire.
Here is an interesting piece of information for you all.
Between the British and US EOD forces, there are two completely different trains of thought concerning wire antennae.
The British EOD technical data says that it is safer to leave blasting cap and fuze/electrical components un-shunted as they can not complete a circuit.
The US EOD technical data says that it is safer to twist the exposed wires together as to create a closed loop and then insulate that end with electrical tape and then foil so it is not exposed to stray EMR.
Either way, there haven't been any reported problems with either school of thought, or practical application, and is still in use today.
So I'm very, very curious as to why this "industry standard" is specific as to wires being in a very specific order, and what the actual performance differences are compared to them being wired in a random order.
