1961 NFD Danbury Group at Little Waltham, Essex

In order to get the antenna attached to the highest tree branches a catapult was used to shot a heavy lead weight with attached line over the branch.

A three person firing team was used, one to pull the catapult, one to hold the catapult and one to provide support.




From left to right:

Ralph Polley, G3NAA holding the catapult. Note the protective head-gear.
