Default radio interference, flying wires, wing rigging.

I need to install flying wires on a WWI airplane wing. I've got Proctor flying wire (bare metal) and nylon coated wire from Du-bro. Haven't decided which one to actually install yet.

I am concerned about radio interference from all of this wire, as either one (bare metal wire or coated wire) will effect the radio signal to some unknown extent.

What about kevlar wire? That should eliminate any risk of interference from the metal wires, right?

If kevlar wire is not an option, what is the safest way to install these metal flying wires?
