Weather Balloon>Helium>100 feet of antenna wire :wink:

2 small party size Helium tanks (18cubic feet) +200Gram Weather balloon tethered by string + 100 feet of 26 gauge Antenna wire ( aka #534 antenna wire from The Wireman)

Antenna wire can also be tethered to a medium sized drone but battery power on most drones is only good for 15-20 minutes per battery where a weather balloon filled with helium is good for 2-3 days when treated with Hi-Float

Cheers ...... Vin

When I was truck camping with my son when he was a very young kid I carried a piece of 1X3 lumber about a foot long. Attached to a hole drilled in one end I had about 30 feet of small copper wire (phone wire). I would throw the stick as high as I could up into a tree and the other end was wrapped around the truck antanna (sp). It increased the reception by leaps and bounds. I could sometimes pick up a rock station in Little Rock Arkansas From northern Ontario. When we later got into backcountry canoeing and remote camping the last thing I wanted to listen to was the city noise that I was trying to get away from so no radio for me.
