wired to 6 radials on this trip. Ladder-line bolted between fiberglass for support.
Radials and vertical wire come off easily with wingnuts for storage.

One of my favorite areas for camping in Colorado is 200 miles SW of Denver
called Saguache Park. A 'park' in geological terms is a large open area
surrounded by mountains. One of the photo's on my main page was taken on
Cochetopa Pass (10,032 ft), a dirt road crossing the Continental Divide and
leading into the remote hills of the Gunnison
National Forest. We were
snowed on several times over the 4th of July weekend.
