A few years ago I put up a 148 foot long wire antenna. It was a great antenna, it worked very well and was my "go-to" antenna for Europe on 20m. Recently I started to have some issues with it and then it stopped working altogether. I finally decided yesterday to investigate what was wrong. I was using RG8X coax for the antenna and had it running under my back deck, so I disconnected the coax and pulled it out into the open. You can see why I was having issues by looking at the pictures below ☺ We're going squirrel hunting tomorrow.
