If you read the ARRL Handbook or even the ARRL Antenna Handbook, you will be
well prepared for World War II.

In the past 60 years, a lot has changed.
There is nothing wrong with how we did it in the 1950s and 1960s, but as a
BIG SUPPORTER of KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid), I would like to point out
that a boatload of thing have changed in the past 50 years.

There were no bungees in 1960.

Both ways work and for me, a good rubber bungee is a lot simpler to deploy
than a rope through a pulley, supporting a bucket of cement that has been
calculated to represent the load that I need.  

Fast forward 40 years; WW II is long since over;  we have bungees.  Just
deploy the right ones.

My experience with bungee cords....they work good until winter comes. 
When the temp goes below freezing your bungee is toast. It will crumble to
tiny pieces....Tom N4RS _______________________________________________
