High-flying with the Bottle Bag Antenna Launcher
The Trail-Friendly Radio column by KI6SN in the October 2009 edition of WorldRadio Online magazine features a simple antenna launching scheme known as the Bottle Bag. Accompanying photographs show the bag's configuration for both carrying and launching.
