Tom Vu gave me a cool suggestion worth saving for cutting copper wire up in the air.
I bought 10 feet of small steel cable and spliced rope on each end. Then shot it over the wire and used it as a rope saw. It took 10 minutes to cut through double #10 solid conductors. It turns out there is a third dead tree in the neighbors yard which will take out a new antenna. I gues I'll have to js 160 M until the tree comes down.
3 large trees along the stream bed died and the second one broke the ant.
