W9BVX's Helium Balloon Antennas. Post #1589.

If you can't view the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVXJB-k8co0. Ever since he first saw a balloon support an antenna, Bob (W9BVX) has wanted to create his own balloon-supported antenna for portable operations.  In this video, Bob duplicates the experience with his fellow radio amateurs at a Wisconsin field near his home.  A balloon-supported antenna could prove useful at the next ARRL Field Day or for an emergency situation where an antenna mast is not available.
