Low-Band Kite Antenna
and Kite Images
Below are images of simple antenna systems elevated by use of a kite. With limited space in the area I live, trying to operate on the low-bands of HF can be quite difficult. After reading up on various options, I found that using a kite to elevate a simple wire antenna was the the most effective in my case. The most difficult task was to find a open area which would allow me to construct such wire antennas.
My first chore was to build a portable wire system which would not take up space, and also be cost effective. The gear which I used to accomplish this task was what I had on-hand. The only thing which I purchased was the stainless steal wire used for the element. I copied a system which is successfully being used by N9ZRT, and made it smaller for my own use.
Try them out, they're Great!
