[TowerTalk] Pulling Heliax through conduit

If you don't have a pulling rope in the  conduit,  tie the rope to a ball
of cloth
and fit it  loosely in one end. At the other end,  use a vacuum (wet/dry, or
whole house like I used). Put the hose to the PVC opening. It ought to 
suck the cloth and rope through very quickly.  I believe there are small
umbrella shaped devices made and sold for this purpose too, but I
have never used them.

Good Luck,
