If you wanna talk about it via some other means, I've got Skype, or we

I'd -rather- do it on the air, but I -never- hear you on.

Get that Butternut vertical outta there, or use it for an antenna 
support on one end of an inverted vee, or a dipole.

Man, you gots lots of bucks to get these big rigs... go buy some 20' 
2x4's and make an antenna center-point support device, and hang some 
wire in the air! ;-)

I'm sure you've seen that support idea in the handbooks.  You could even 
"scab" a couple of 2x4's together (on both sides), hold 'em together 
with bolts, nuts and washers, and add on, as you're on the roof, and 
going up with it.

It'd be a great idea to get some weather proof primer and enamel paint, 
and double coat all the wood, before you go up in the air with it, so it 
can last more than a couple of years.  A grayish-blue doesn't stand out 
against the sky.  ;-)
