Antenna launcher

I am working on changing the orientation of my g5rv antenna. I recall seeing an air gun launcher used on field day. Does anyone know where one is that I can use or could someone come to my house so I can shoot a wire high in a tree? I have one end attached to my tower but want the other end supported by a tree. I live between Pea Ridge and Rogers.

Hey, Van. I sent you a message.

Van, I certainly do not have a launcher. Although I believe our esteemed Vice President Alan Katz may have one. I am nearly certain that there are BCRO members with launchers. I hope someones steps up and helps you out.

Hi Van,

I have one that you are welcome to use. Of course it will cost you, I need help putting up a dipole soon.

Thank you Scott for coming helping me with my antenna today. I can now get Florida and the west coast states. I heard some new areas already. I was receiving east and west coasts and will try more tonight. I heard California, Washing state and Oregon on the West side. I heard New York and Connecticut too. Maybe I can get the last 5 states I need for Worked all states soon.
