How about this for new antenna support "wire"


1/8" steel cable
What about 10' of nylon from the feed point up to cable, cable across most of the tree, back to nylon to the ground tie-off.

Drawings of the Cottage

We are planning a new room. I located an online application that really made it easy to help develop the floor plan. See Floor Planner for details.

SAP's Antenna Farm



From tree trimming, to installing, to repairing the beam, fixing the telephone pole extension, to going where no man has gone before, and in the end, the last photo of the stealth 160 meter halfwave dipole and 80 meter vertical delta loop. Just the 3 element 30 meter beam left to build for the Glen Martin tower.

Gay says, "With all the wires up it looks like P.T. Barum's High Wire Act is about to begin", HA, HA.

Enjoy, "SAP"
