I need to put a Beverage over an area that is flat but full of 
implementable brush of weeds, tan tan, cacha, and cactus.  A Brush Hog 
would be great to cut a path but actually the brush would keep a wire at 
least 5 feet above ground if I could get across it.   About 750 feet 
down range is a clearance for the termination etc...but is there anyway 
to get a wire 750 feet down wind?  100 feet up is one thing but can 
anything launch a fishing line with a down range distance of 750 feet.  
Which device would have the greatest thrown power to make this 
horizontal distance.

I have even considered renting one of the islands sightseeing 
helicopters for a few minutes to pull the wire.
