Obviously, the person who wired this is type "NM"- No Mind!!!!

I hope that 300 OHM twin lead antenna wire is not being used at a line voltage to connect a receptacle or lights

Theres always enough room in the junction box.You just need a bigger hammer

That's why he's smiling...Duct tape is harder to remove than electrical tape or masking tape [Linked Image]. Plus...everyone knows that splices in individual wires (free-air style)need little, if any, insulation... [Linked Image]
