Thanks to those with ears that could hear my signal - I'm sure it was in the noise for everyone. I had a full-size wire vertical all set to hoist into the tree, which I had planned to do on Saturday afternoon, but in the process some things went wrong (as Mr. Murphy always seems to make sure of) and about sunset, my support rope came apart and my vertical came crashing down as I was hoisting it up. So I punted, and took the vertical wire and ran it horizontal, about 6' off the ground, around a perimeter fence. That, plus one 90' wire for a counterpoise, and I was on the air. I had planned to do this QRP, but had hoped to have at least a decent antenna to do it with. Oh well :) Rig: KX3, 5W
