My reply:

I had to take my down (neighbors complained becasue there kids might get shocked - try staying off my property and it would not= be an issue).

You are suppose to drive a long grounding rod in the ground, they want you to set it at 6 feet but I could only drive mine about 4 1/2.   Anyway the harbor freight one is capable of charging several miles of fencing.   I used large wooden stakes (8ft) that are driven im the ground and then I set one wire and then the other, using the width of  two by four as my spacer around the posts then I simply angle the wire up and run them around again and again. The problem of course is accessing the fruit, I tried two step ladders that worked, and also un-winding, then duh, I found it was just darn easy to use a fruit picker  : )  I only got to do this one year before my useless neighbors complained about cats, children etc, etc - sigh.  But it worked great.
