Eddy,  the wires hang in the open air; the ropes navigate the tree limbs and 
out into open space typically. We're content with the performance of the 
wires...  I'm sure the wires don't do as well as stacked four over four on 
220ft towers and I'm also sure I'd prefer the not having to maintain massive 
towers, yagis, rotors, etc. I've got one big antenna and that is enough for me

  Hi Guys,

  Absolutely AMAZING, isn't it...? 

  People will go to such great lengths like that to get their wire creations 
supported on the wings of one of Mother Nature's "organic towers", whilst guys 
on other Reflectors condemn the use of trees as antenna supports due to their 

  I never could quite wrap my head around the claim that having a wire 
supported in a tree is a "...lossy" affair. Indeed, I only wish that my 
property here had MORE of them---and far TALLER than the existing ones, too!
