Here's an interesting antenna idea for those seeking a good 160 meter antenna for the upcoming ARRL Field Day in late June 2018.  How about using a balloon-supported 1/4 wavelength antenna for "The Gentlemen's Band?"  Be sure to plan ahead and check with your local airport to make sure your balloon-supported antenna doesn't present a threat to low-flying aircraft.  According to the "Ham Prepper" team, this balloon-supported antenna did very well that weekend two years ago.
