    Re: Knot Question
    From: Brooke Clarke
    Date: 2004 Aug 12, 11:36 -0700

    Hi Bill and the other posters:
    
    The taughtline knot is just what I was looking for.  The masts are in
    reality just 10 foot long 2x4s and 8 of them will hold up an
    experimental antenna.
    
    Thanks very much,
    
    Brooke Clarke, N6GCE
