The trials of setting up and end fed is daunting for me. I have 3 options. Potato gun, fishing rod, or throw line. So far the potato gun seems to work best for me. The only draw back is the compressor but that isn’t too bad. I am not a fisherman so the fishing rod hasn’t worked for me. The throw line may work when there is a clear line of trees.
The other problem I have is preventing getting the wire and rope tangled.
One possible key is to carefully putting away the rope and wire as you pack from your activation. I have a tendency to be in a hurry to pack up after an activation.
I’ve enjoyed using various bands during my activations. I still want to add more bands and add CW and data. Thanks to all the hunters and p2p.
