Hi Lowfers,

some of us have not been QRV for some time due to the heavy winds. Well, I
thought with my telescopic fibre glas mast lowering it doen and re-erecting
should be a matter of minutes. Now, hours later, my experience has helped
me to discover some essential basic laws:

Geri's laws for erecting wire antennas

- When erecting an antenna tower with guy wires or top loads, each of the
wires wire will get caught wherever possible.

- The probability for a wire to get caught is at least exponential to the
total number of wires used.

- The probability of one single wire to get caught at a specific place is
directly reciprocal to the acessibility of that place.

- If there is a slight chance that you might need a ladder, you will need

BTW: My antenna is back in the air I am QRV again. CU on the air!

P.S.: My longwave information homepage can now also be reached under, which might be easier to remember than my previous
