I use open wire (ladderline actually) for a 900 ft 2 wire switchable beverage.
Works great, and is supported on a combination of poles and trees, using those
plastic coated ladder hooks you can buy in any hardware store.
The ladderline I use is copperweld and is held at the forward end, and pulled
taut at the back end, using a come-along, then tied with rope.
The other use here is as feedline for 80 meter double
extended zepp, so I can tune it on cw and phone thru a MBVA.
It has its applications.
