80M OCF Dipole

So... Instead of putting up a 80M Dipole I decided to put up a Off center feed (OCF) Dipole. It is a little different then a regular dipole in that it is not feed at the center, as the name implies it is feed some distance from the center. I decided to go with the 80/20 split. With this split I should be resonant in the 80, 40, 20, 10 and ?? meter bands. Not bad for about 137' feet of wire and a balun. I'll explain the construction and theory behind the OCF later, but now let me tell you about my issues getting the antenna in the air.
