7 MHz WSPR with a kite supported vertical antenna. Post #1451.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SgN2FcMYL80. 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.
