...there is an old QST - circa 60's I think that had a picture of a
"topped" tree with a rotator and yagi on it. I would hate to have to
use those tree climbing leg dagger boots but can see where this is a
workable solution! I bet if someone did that today they would have the
entire village of environmental whackos upon them!|
Racing cars/bicycles have a lot of carbon products that are lightweight but very strong - while an antenna modeling dream, a non-metallic tower has financially got to be out of the question.
In days of old, when trees grew tall and straight, many towers and other structures were built of wood.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
