And then there was the time we backpacked into some 80 foot tall Mississippi
virgin pines...forgot my antenna...remembered QST "Army Antenna" Article of
1950's...had to make do with using a couple of rusty nails with rust scraped
off...loaded up the evergreen pines...tuned pinetree antenna by sawing off
lower limbs to lessen ground effect capacity and to create directivity and
gain...and worked US and DX stations alike. Worked like you wouldn't believe.
But that's another story
