I began by clearing away all the wires lying about the area. Many of these wires have been on the ground for the past 2 or 3 years and are thus embedded into the ground.
I also pulled down the existing remains of the wire antennas. These wires were deployed using weed eater plastic cord. Interestingly after 3 years this weedeater plastic is still very strong and does not appear to have deteriorated at all.
Much of the wire was from a topband radial system that Paul deployed. These radials consist of aluminum fence wire and is excellent and inexpensive for antenna applications.
|Aluminum home brew wire feeder. Still in good condition and will be redeployed.|
