Trident Pneumatic Tennis Ball Launcher for wire antennas

WD6CMU wrote: Field Day 2003 was the testing ground for the third generation tennis ball launcher, dubbed “Trident”. Two legs and the apex of a 400′ vee beam were hoisted with three shots, a fourth shot was used to pull a messenger line over the beam to pull it loose from tree snags — a 100% performance record on its first try out. The 5lb Trident also proved to be handy in the field, easily packed through waist high brush that would have been almost impossible for the previous model which weighed almost 22lb.
