Hi Dick

   I live on a 100' x  100'  lot.  I put up a 160m dipole that looks like
a pretzel. The average hieght is abt 20 feet.  To look at it from the
street it looks like the letter M with the two ends raised 10 feet above
ground. It works better than I thought it would. I must say...the
telephone ploe on my lot looked tempting ,but I chose to sink  a post for
the "Loose " end and hid that with a small tree that I stole from the
nearby forest...:)
In a few years I may be able to use that tree. With that silly looking
dipole I have endless hours of enjoyment. I have worked  the Canary
Islands, most of Europe some 6 landers and I am waiting for 2 QSL's from
Russia,all on 100 watts. It  may be nice to have a 1/2 wave dipole in
free space but  that isn't possible from my lot. It's a great band, lots
of REALLY nice people. Get that wire up anyway you can. Make it safe as
possible and have lots of fun on a "Gentlemans" band.
