Aloha Bill,  Here in Hawaii,  most homes come with "jalousie"
windows.  Each section is made up of five long,  narrow panes of
glass which tilt open/close.  For me it is very easy:  slit in the
plastic screen,  then between a couple of the panes and on to
my Johnson Matchbox balanced tuner.  Hope to have the three+
V-beams,  a-la Floyd Colvin's set up (August 1956 QST) up
in about three weeks.  Then we'll see what happens!
