Kite supported long wire /P operation

A perfect day for some kite flying! Warm october sunshine & a steady wind on a pleasant Sunday afternoon prompted Dave, M0TAZ to do some portable operating from Hornchurch Country Park using a long wire supported by a kite. We worked close on 50 stations from all around the UK & Europe.

Operating equipment: Icom 7000 powered by a 65Ah leisure battery, RF around 60w, 80m Long wire antenna kite supported at ~60 metres.

There are two videos on YouTube from today: Video 1 | Video 2
