I had just heard about a new tool called Arborist Friend.  My local Stihl dealer didn’t know what that tool was so I described it and he did have a throwline combo with weight so that is what I purchased.  It still took an hour for me to put my antenna up but I had a great activation.  Here is a link to my YouTube video with tips for after the activation and where the antenna ended up.  I had 42 contacts.  One friend said I was 59+ today but they couldn’t hear me yesterday. I had a mother and her 17 year old daughter stop by.  The mother said she had been seeing me and was wondering what I was doing.  I explained it to her and gave her my card.  I hope they will get involved.
Thanks for all the contacts and P2P.
