Hi Ed - I have done the same thing on 80/75 meters with great results
using a tree and a sling shot to get the wire up. Used chicken wire for
the ground system.
Did this the first time from an apartment in Phoenix, Arizona in the
late 90's using a 45 foot tree and put a 8ft x4ft pieced of chicken wire
on the balcony of my 2nd floor apartment. Although tuned for 80/75, I
got it to play on 160-10 with the appropriate matching devices. Worked
135 countries on 80/75 with this setup and since I was going through a
divorce, it helped me keep my sanity.
Tnx and 73,
