Deploying wire antenna into trees can be a mixed blessing.  On one hand, trees offer height and space above ground.  On the other hand, you can snarl a lot of wire on branches if your aim is off.

In this video from "Ham Radio CQ", we see several ways of getting your wire antennas into trees without making too many mistakes.  The suggestions outlined in this video can save you time and frustration.

I want to show you how I shoot my antenna into a tree for POTA or any portable use. A good simple wire antenna can be shot into a tree easy. With a basic 100 W HF radio, portable antenna and emergency generator on hand I decided to operate as Class 1B (one transmitter, portable). To keep it simple I set up at my own house and operated only SSB. Yes, I am considered portable, whether I have hauled my station and accessories 100 miles or 100 feet. I brought the generator out of storage and located it 100 feet away from my operating spot. The distance of 100 feet was significant — it is the length of my extension cord. The antenna was a new Buddipole. I had purchased it with the intention of using it for an RV station during camping trips. So I placed my rig, microphone and foot switch on my deck and mounted the Buddipole in the dipole configuration nearby. That was my entire Field Day station.

Thanks for joining us today.
