I remember reading an article in an Army publication from the
signals group in Ft. Monmouth NJ which described a battlefield
expedient antenna which used a tree as the antenna. They coupled
to the tree by means of a multi-turn loop around the trunk of the
tree. I don't remember the results of the antenna's performance.
Perhaps some other group members remember the article?
