During last field day I paid a visit to my old group, the Central Michigan
Amateur Radio Club. Helped them put up a full wave loop for 80m. Couldn't
believe what a simple job it was -- They just shot a line into a tree (fishing
pole method) for the center support, then two more for corner supports. Pulled
it up into a rough diamond shape, roughly vertical orientation. Used fairly
light gage wire, supported only by tree branches, yet the thing survived a
pretty rough summer thunderstorm that night. I think the results were pretty
good with the loop. Can't do that out here in the desert -- no trees :-) .
