Here's another great antenna idea from Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE). In this video, Peter tries a kite supported antenna to launch his WSPR signal. WSPR can work with inefficient, short antennas, but really shines when you attach your rig to a half wavelength vertical antenna. Peter says his 200mW signal was received in North America and the Canary Islands...great distance for a QRP signal.
