Kite antenna HF portable during national parks activity weekend

If you lack a good antenna support for that upcoming portable operation, please consider this idea from Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE).

A few years ago, Peter participated in a national parks activity weekend using a kite to support his wire antenna.  He got good results from this experiment.  The video discusses how he set up his "kite mobile" antenna and what kind of results you can expect from this antenna system.

Here are some comments from Peter (VK3YE):

QRP on 80, 40 & 20m with a kite-supported wire antenna. Several good contacts despite poor conditions.
