Hanging a dipole for Field Day. Post #1158.

Here's another way to launch a dipole antenna over trees at a Field Day site.  Bob Keys (NA4B) is using a clever "crossbow" design to accurately launch a dipole antenna into tall trees at the 1990 Raleigh Amateur Radio Society Field Day location.  Jeff Wittech (AC4ZO) uses a more traditional bow and arrow to shoot a dipole over the trees.  A slingshot can also be used.  You may find these suggestions helpful during the 2017 ARRL Field Day event, 24-25 June 2017.
