Hi Ed,

No, I never used copper foil.  If I said copper foil, I apologize.  Although, I did price it 
once.  FORGET IT!  It is way too expensive.  The usage on copper foil is just too low, so it 
has a very high price.  It is cheaper to use aluminum, by far.  True, the copper is a better 
conductor, but for the price, the aluminum is good enough for me.
