There are some of us at the age of 70 who have strung many a wire between
trees or other even more precarious perches in out earlier years.
Now comes the time to reward our patience and thrift. This time around, I
will purchase a nice, new 60 foot tower, rugged rotator, couple of
OptiBeams, and pay to have it done--even if I incur a bit of a payment for a
while. While you youngsters are enjoying the fun I used to enjoy in
(patchwork) radio, I will be on the lake looking for lunkers. You can come
join me for a booze free fishing day, with maybe a little UHF rig on board.
If you have the years left to scrounge and invest in patchwork systems, more
power to you. If I were 50, I would join you.
Regards, Warren; W5KKW
