I actually enjoy them both, and I really don't mind clambering around
working on my antenna, but I am not sure what changes will do to my
I decided to put the wire in question into a maple leaf sycamore. That
accomplished, I have one segment going in a westerly direction (do not have
compass), two in a southeasterly direction, and another runs easterly and
then vertically into the tall fir tree.
I think if the new proerty owner doesn't mind, what I will do is use my
slingshot to get a wire as high up the fir as possible and hopefully go over
a strong limb and then back the ground. Then I can make a loop out of it and
run it fromthe insulator in the tree trunk over to the receiver. Dunno if
that will do better than the three horizontal segments or not.
