I'm building yet another project and this one calls for a couple
of ferrite beads on a piece of bus wire. Ok, I've built a few
projects before, so I'm not a complete newbie... but I don't know
what bus wire is. I admit my ignorance. (There, I said it!)

What is 'bus wire'? Is there something special about bus wire?
Is it just #22 or #28 wire? Insulated? Stranded? Solid?
Do I know bus wire, but just by a different name??? Arrgghh.
What is it?

        It is simply solid, uninsulated, tinned copper wire. Usually used in
sizes from 10 to 24. (sometimes bigger or smaller depending on the
application) Nothing real exotic!
