In order to hit the desired strike on the house and avoid using a third pole (OK, I really wanted to utilize yet another type of construction), a second set of swing arm spools were used, set to a tree like common forestry practice in these parts. The length on the swing arm is set to allow the tree to sway in the wind or objects to fall on the line, and not allow the wires to touch or break under strain. A pair of Hemi - 103's are shown. Note the neighbor's triplex in the background. I think I prefer the openwire myself.
