26-JUN-2004 Chip


Pachaug Forest, Voluntown, CT

Field Day 2004
This was taken at the annual ham radio event. This may appear to be a little odd, a guy firing a sling shot next to a kid with a fishing pole, but it has special meaning. The guy is firing a weight, attached to the fishing line. The line is being shot over a branch. Then the weight is removed and a heavier line is attached and reeled back over the branch. The heavier line can then be used to raise a wire antenna (dipole). In this case, after numerous failed attempts, the weight was thrown over the branch. But this is still a fun photo (when you know the story).

I thought this would be bird fishing..I think it's an interesting shot.. If you would not have explained it would have made us think, what the heck is this..
Yes a nice candid shot
