3211Re: antenna mounted on sand
- Jan 1, 2009For sand camping, I use AA15 anchors for the tent and fly. The vendor
is http://www.creativeshelters.com They also make a version with a
higher pullout rating, the AA30.
Seems a bipod at each end with an end guy should be easy to rig, with
PVC pipe or wooden staves. Place an end guy in line with the antenna
to a screw in anchor as above.
Give the scouts the above stuff and let them figure it out.
