Don your comments remind me of the time I visited the QTH of Bob, W5PYT. El
Paso Natural Gas had abandoned the microwave system leaving a 200 ft. tower
that supported the dishes vacant. Bob talked them into letting him use it
for antennas and support.
He had so many antennas strung up on it that a bird couldn't fly within 1000
ft. of it unless they were sliced like a loaf of bread. I can imagine Bob
pruning each antenna following installation of something new to achieve
He always had a good signal though. Boy what a mess it was.
