W5AWS Mast Mounting

After portable operations, Saturday, 16 December 2023, at Heyburn WMA, POTA K8124, where I spent what felt like too much time erecting my inverted-V EFLW antenna, I identified some changes to improve my efficiency at getting on air.
i. Add a keychain split-ring to the masthead to stop the top section dropping

ii. Replace the masthead fitting with a stainless steel carabiner.
iii. Use a drive-on mast mount instead of guying to tent pegs.
