I love it!  Goes to show with a little inventiveness you can make what you need out of whatever's available.

If I ever get seriously back into working the 2M/70cm satellites with my handheld Yagi, I want to make one from barbed wire and a tree branch like I saw some Scouts do in an article. :)

BTW Gil, I never really learned to use the iambic features of paddles, but I learned something from your video.  During Q (as in CQ) I can leave the dash paddle down and tap the dot to get the dot in Q and have the final dash follow in perfect timing.
