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
