220' Center Support Guys in Place

Thanks to everyone for all your good ideas. Especially great thanks to W4BXI and KE4ID who keep asking me "what are you trying to accomplish." There is no better way to focus the mind than to see if you can answer this simple question to your satisfaction.

Oh, and a very special thanks to W4BXI for teaching me how to use the bow system without which none of the Cottage or Boxwood antennas would have been possible in their present form.

As we say in the South...

Well done y'all!

Legs, Skyhooks, and Feedline

Can you identify each?

220' Dipole

Dipole is up.  W4BXI will visit tomorrow and advise on installing a skyhook and other changes are appropriate...assuming it survives the current winds.  I'm also looking forward to his estimate of the average height above ground. I have drawn in the line to help you visualize its location in the trees.
