With a 'power sled 36' i run LF transmissions in France. The kite was
up in the air for > 24 hours without a break. I even went to bed
(tent) while it stayed up :-) But of course it depends on the wind
That kite can carry 300m of wire , you know.
There is a smaller version called 'power sled 24' which is maybe even
a better choice when the wind is strong and the string is short.
Looking forward to your first transmissions.
PS: A kite CW QSO on LF, that would be fine!

Here I am limited to 60m unless I notify the aviation
authority (which I don't want to do), so I thought about
using 2 or even 3 kites in a row each at 60m, spaced maybe
100m or so.
Trying this cheap and simple single line parafoil
It says "stable and accurate flight". Well my experience is
different! I think the winds are a bit too strong and it
quickly becomes unstable. Next experiment will add two tails.
I've got to give this cheap kite a good try, because the next
size up is £50. It seems to have plenty of pull, enough to
lift a thin wire, just need to make it stable...
If I can get something to stay up for more than a few minutes,
I might try some LF transmission. That could be entertaining.
