Some thoughts come to my mind, as to what might be in the head of
someone doing something an antenna such as this:
1. Never been done before
2. It is AMATEUR radio.
3. Who will ever do one any bigger?
4. Will it make a cover page of one of my ham radio magazines as a
technical item, not
    as a some other aspect of our hobby?
5. Putting up an array like this allows a lot of time for safe beer
drinking with a result at 
    the end of the keg.
6. It is something which will be noticed.
7. It is something which will be remembered.
8. It is something that the creator's peers will surely talk about.
9. What the Hell, I've got the wire, and I've got the curiosity.
