Here's another great antenna for the 160 meter amateur radio band.  All you need is a kite and 80 meters (262.467 feet) of strong wire.  Of course, a good wind really helps get this antenna into the air.

According to "Steph", the entire antenna system is fairly simple and produces excellent results:

"Using 80m of wire and a kite on the beach with backpack radio to operate on the 160m amateur radio ham band."
